Soldiers come home: One soldier suprises his daughter

When a soldier comes back from war after being away from his or her family and friends for so long, it is always an emotional homecoming. For one White Bear Lake middle school girl, it was her father's homecoming that she will never forget. The Star Tribune reported that Specialist Michael Mirza returned back home Monday from serving a year in Iraq. His daughter did not know of his return until she saw him in the middle of her volleyball game on the very court she was playing on. The game was put on pause so the daughter, Jordan Mirza, could welcome her father back home with a long embrace.
The Grand Forks Herald also reported on the event, and they seemed to use nearly the same report from the Associated Press as the Star Tribune. The only difference was that the Grand Forks Herald mentioned that Jordan had a hard time having her father gone in Iraq.
