BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - We're not crying, you're crying.

U.S. Army National Guard Servicemember Murphy Hall surprised his 8-year-old son Malek at his school on Monday.

Malek was at lunch at Sacred Heart in Baton Rouge when his dad surprised him with a visit.

Hall had just returned from a tour in Kuwait. The last time he'd seen his son was almost a year ago, in May of 2016.

Hall is also an LSP Trooper in Lake Charles.
