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.
