Marietta soldier surprises mom at parade

Posted: Updated:
MARIETTA, Ga. -

It was an extra special Independence Day for one family that went to Friday’s Marietta parade.

Friday was supposed to be a laid back day for Lavona Hyde with her daughter Rachel. However, Hyde’s daughter had something up her sleeve along with her brother, Dillon.

Dillon made it back to Georgia from his base in Texas Thursday night and stayed at a friend’s house to keep the secret under wraps. He had been away for seven months before his return.

It was the surprise of a lifetime for Lavona Hyde

Soon, Dillon will head back out to his base, but for the time being Lavona and Rachel will enjoy his company.

Rachel tells FOX 5 her family plans to visit all the best restaurants in Marietta before her brother heads back out.
