FLORISSANT, Mo. (KSDK) - A secret mission lead to a lot of smiles and tears Monday at a Florissant elementary school.
Army Sgt. Katie Bernal and her 8-year-old daughter Amber reunited for the first time in more than 10 months.
The third grader had no idea her mom was back in the states from her tour in Bahrain.
The two, along with Amber's older sister, Ariel, left school early to catch up, and as Amber puts it, "snuggle."
