Soldier surprises daughter at Eastport schoolPosted: Updated:
The daughter of a deployed soldier got a surprise from her father during school this week.
Master Sgt. Keith Goss surprised his 12-year-old daughter Kaylee at Eastport Elementary School.
She had no idea her dad was coming home from overseas - or that he would show up in the middle of her sixth-grade class.
Goss is a member of the Air National Guard's 106th Rescue Wing out of Westhampton Beach.
Their plane landed at Gabreski Airport Sunday after about five months of deployment in Iraq.
Four members of the 106th were killed in a chopper crash on the Iraq-Syria border earlier this year.
