Deployed Sailor Mom Comes Home to Surprise 18-Year-Old Son At High School Graduation


Petty Officer 2nd Class Vera Turner was honorably serving in the U.S. Navy., fulfilling a nine month deployment in Guantanamo Bay. Sadly the 16-year veteran wasn’t expected to return in time for her son’s graduation…expected being the keyword.


Vera organized the entire surprise a month in advance. Her mission was top secret, leaving her own husband out of the loop! Contacting Tuscaloose City Schools, the navy sailor requested her son be the very last graduate in the processional. Vera planned to pop out after he crossed the stage to receive his diploma.
