LAREDO, Texas (KGNS) -- It was a tear-jerking moment for those at a middle school in Laredo, Texas when a soldier surprised his kids.

Sgt. John Ramos returned home on Wednesday and walked in on a Veteran's Day Celebration at Trautmann Middle School. The gym was full of students, veterans and Ramos' three kids who had no idea he would be coming home.

One of Ramos' kids goes to Malakoff, the other goes to Trumann and the other is a young baby.

The kids were overjoyed to see their father home.

Ramos spent the last 10 months deployed away from his family.

Ramos spoke to the crowd during Wednesday's assembly about what it means to serve the U.S.
