Local Soldier Reunites With Family After Two Years Overseas

Updated:
GALENA, KANSAS -

Emotions were high in Galena this afternoon. After two years serving overseas Corporal Jacob Helton reunited with his family. He did it at a Galena High School pep rally to surprise his mom -- who wasn't expecting him for another 20 days. Jacob's dad had been planning the homecoming for over a month, which resulted in a heartwarming reunion -- especially for mom.

 Jacob says, "... But it was awesome seeing the happiness on her face that I'm finally home. So this was all well worth it."

Jacob will spend a week and a half at home before heading back to the marines.
