Siouxland sailor surprises kids at school


He's been gone for a year serving in Afghanistan, and now a Sioux City Navy man is back, much to the surprise of his kids.

Lincoln Ryan made an impromptu visit to his kids' school at Sergeant Bluff-Luton Thursday.

His kindergartner and first grader ran to his side after he walked through the door.

They say they're happy to finally have their dad home.

"It's good to be back, excited, it's been a long time," said Ryan.

Ryan left for Afghanistan last December.

He got a chance to see his kids in March but hasn't seen them since.
