BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Christmas came early for one mother in Baton Rouge.
Haley Hoon, a private with the US Army, has been stationed in Fort Huachuca, Arizona for the past six months and is originally from Walker, Louisiana. After graduating from high school, she started her new career in Army intelligence.
Since enlisting in the US Army, she has missed many big family events and holidays. When Haley learned she could come home for Christmas, she called her friends and sister, Jadelyn, to pick her up from the airport. With the help of her sister and friends, Haley was able to surprise her mother, Sherrie, at their home in Walker. The special moment was captured on a cell phone.
