WATCH: New Orleans soldier surprises children at school after returning from deployment


On Monday a couple of students at a New Orleans school got a surprise that was months in the making.

A class of students at Einstein Elementary thought they were getting a visit from the school’s mascot.

However, it was the person inside the costume who was the surprise.

Shelby Calhoun had just returned home after months of being deployed in the Middle East.

She surprised her kids at school.

Her sons, Romelo and Emmanuel, were so stunned they couldn’t speak.
