Soldier surprises girlfriend

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - It's always an emotional reunion when a serviceman or woman comes back from their time overseas.

However, a reunion in Baton Rouge Friday was special for more that one reason for a soldier returning from Korea.

Sgt. Alfred Savoy is coming up on five years of service in the Army and has just returned from a year long deployment at Camp Casey Korea.

While deployed, Savoy hatched a plan with his girlfriend's mother to surprise his girlfriend, LaKendra Thomas, upon his return.
