A holiday surprise
A holiday surprise

Peyton Matesic, a sixth-grader, never expected the special guest to walk through his classroom door would be his brother, home from the Navy.

Mike Mahon, 20, arrived home on leave from training just in time for the holidays and made one of his first stops his brother's classroom.

Mahon surprised Peyton when he walked into his math class on Dec. 18.

"I was so happy," Peyton said. "I always hoped he would surprise me."

Mahon visited with family before he was sent to San Diego for his next assignment.
