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 of New Iberia 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.
