Air Force mom back from Afghanistan surprises son
STANFORD, Calif. (KGO) -- A five-year-old boy got a welcome visit from his mom Saturday night in Palo Alto.
Jackson Fyffe thought he was making the ceremonial first kick at Saturday night's San Jose Earthquakes game. Instead his mom, a lieutenant colonel in the Air Force, walked out and surprised him.
Celene Fyffe came home from Afghanistan where she was a director of psychological health. Officials at Travis Air Force Base, where Fyffe is based, came up with the idea.
Fyffe had not seen her son in six months.
