Posted: Updated:

Abilene, TX-A member of the Air Force returned from Afghanistan to make a surprise appearance at his son's high school graduation in Texas on Saturday.

High school senior Kenneth Lindsey Jr. couldn't believe his eyes when he received his diploma on stage from his dad.

Chief Master Sgt. Kenneth Lindsey was on deployment in Afghanistan and hadn't seen his family in two months, but this was something he couldn't miss.

Kenneth Jr. says he couldn't have gotten a better graduation gift..

"He's serving our country; to me in my eyes it's bigger than missing my high school graduation," said Kenneth Jr. "Is that really him? That can't be him. After I got a good glance, I said man, he made it. That was my first thought he made it."

Now, that he's graduated, Kenneth Jr. plans to join the military.
