SALEM, Wisc. - FC1 U.S Navy Service Member William Smith gave his daughter the surprise of a lifetime during her cheer practice.
Delainey Smith, 17, didn't see it coming while she practiced with her team for their big competition the next day. She assumed they were doing an extra performance for parents, but didn't know she'd have her own dad in the audience.
As soon as he walks out she falls the floor, her face cupped in her hands, crying out of pure joy.
Will Smith expected a tackle hug, but instead got a beyond-excited greeting from his teenage daughter.
"I'm happy that he's home and he actually gets to come to regional's," said Delainey Smith.
