KILLEN, Ala. (WZDX) - A Valley soldier returned home to the surprise of a little softball player in Lauderdale County.
4-year-old Brooklyn Carroll had not seen her dad, Sergeant Danny Carroll in nearly a year while he was deployed in Afghanistan.
Monday evening, Carroll planned a special return home, surprising Brooklyn at her softball game.
"There are no words that can describe it. I have missed the little one for 10 or 11 months now," says Sergeant Carroll.
Sergeant Carroll has completed his tour of duty and says he is ready to make up for lost time with his wife and daughter.
