Deployed Dad Shocks Graduation Crowd
Taylor Crafton was all set to graduate from high school, but someone special was missing from the crowd. A cardboard cutout of her dad, made by a family friend, was sitting in his place for the graduation ceremony because he was deployed in Cuba for duty. As her name was called to receive her diploma, Taylor spotted someone familiar walking across stage and immediately fell to the floor. It was her hero, who had travelled all the way from Cuba in order to be present during her special moment. No one in the family knew that he was going to be attending the ceremony. “I'm just so happy he's here. Better than a car. Better than anything. So yeah, that's all I wanted for graduation," said Taylor.
