Glenwood Ridge Elementary School kindergartner Viktoria Irwin stands by her mother, who she thinks has come in to read to her class, when a surprise visitor comes in the door: her father, Army Staff Sgt. Timothy Irwin, who is stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas. Timothy, who has been at Fort Bliss since August, hadn't been back to see 6-year-old Viktoria and his wife, Daniela, since early October.
