Welcome Home! Local Marine surprises brother at school
Emotions were evident for U.S. Marine Cpl. Jordan Phelps on Friday, April 12 when he surprised his little brother, Payton Phelps, at Clopton Elementary School.
Phelps recently completed a seventh-month tour in Afghanistan and after several weeks in San Diego, came home to see his family in Eolia.
At 2:30 p.m. on Friday, April 12, Jordan walked into his brother’s second-grade class. Payton immediately jumped into his big brother’s arms for a long overdue hug.
“It’s a good welcome home,” said the Marine.
Well-wishers greeted Phelps throughout the school and neighbors decorated the road his family lives on.
