With their father on a military deployment overseas, Lilly and Eva Cunningham didn’t expect to see him at this year’s sing-along at Valentine Hills Elementary School.
But their mother, Michelle, had other plans.
The fifth-grader and first-grader, along with their kindergarten brother Eli, got a wonderful surprise when Capt. Shaun Cunningham surprised all three at the all-school event on December 20. Later in the day, Cunningham visited Mounds View High School to surprise his oldest daughter Kiely, a sophomore.
Cunningham is serving as the commander in the 2nd Infantry Division Sustainment Brigade at Camp Carroll, South Korea. He’ll return in early January to continue joint training exercises with the South Korean Army.
