Another magical moment caught on video in Minnesota as a military family was reunited.
After a six-month deployment to Kuwait, 1st Lt. Leah Garrison returned home to Minnesota on Friday and she almost immediately went to her sister's school to surprise her.
Dani Bubendorf, a sixth-grader at McGuire Middle School, was in the cafeteria when her sister walked in, and Lakeville Area Schools captured the special moment on video.
The sisters stayed in contact during Garrison's overseas deployment, with Bubendorf saying her older sister often helped her with homework.
As of January 3, WCCO reported that approximately 900 citizen soldiers of the Minnesota National Guard were deployed in the Middle East, including 700 members of the St. Paul-based 34th Expeditionary Combat Aviation Brigade.
