Kyler went to the dance at Lamkin Elementary without her father, Kevin Matthews, who she thought was still on deployment overseas.
But little did she know, he had a surprise for her.
Matthews, who was away in Kuwait for a year and 12 days, recently learned he was returning home just in time for his daughter's dance.
A video shared to Facebook showed the sweet reunion between Matthews and Kyler.
