OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) -- — An unbelievable surprise homecoming for three Millard kids.

Technical Sergeant Bradley Hansen is back in Omaha and surprised his children Thursday at Ackerman Elementary in Millard. They set up a “Be Kind” rally and had two of his daughters, and son come up and talk about how they are kind to others.

Hansen surprised his kids, and the tears of joy started flowing.

"Just a lot of anticipation just to see them. I could hear them I just wanted to see them, see what their reactions were,” TSgt. Hansen explained.

The kids had no idea he was coming at all.

"I was just too excited I didn't really think. I just went up there and hugged him with my sister and brother,” said 11-year-old Jennifer Hansen.

TSgt. Hansen is with the 55th Wing of the U.S. Air Force, and spent 6 ½ months stationed in United Arab Emirates.
