Soldier Surprises Daughter At School

Posted: Updated:
BLACKWOOD, N.J. -

A little girl in Blackwood, New Jersey got a big surprise at school.

During a school assembly today, Skylynn, a second grader at Blackwood Elementary, was blindfolded and did not know what to expect next.

Her father, U.S. Army Ranger John Ippito appeared when she took off her blindfold.  It was the first time the two had seen each other in nine months.

Ippito wanted to surprise his daughter on her birthday and the principal at Blackwood Elementary School was happy to help.

"Since my daddy came home this is the best birthday ever," Skylynn said.

The family is planning on having a very special birthday celebration for Skylynn tonight.
