HIGH POINT, N.C. -- A school assembly turned into a special moment at Shadybrook Elementary school on Wednesday. Chief Petty Officer Kevin Couture surprised his kids at a school assembly.

CPO Couture, who is in the Coast Guard, recently returned from a one-year deployment in Saudi Arabia. His wife set up the surprise and made sure it happened during a school assembly.

When his daughter and son saw him walk into the school gym, they rushed to hug him.

He asked the kids if they were surprised and through the tears of joy--they said "yes".

CPO Couture called it the best moment of his life.
