U.S. Air Force Sergeant surprises wife on stage at her graduation

(SBG San Antonio)

A University of Incarnate Word student got a special surprise Saturday afternoon at her graduation when she went on stage to accept her diploma.

Heather Jo McNeil stood at the stage and received her Bachelor of Science degree from the UIW School of Professional Studies Saturday in front of her children and family, but her husband was not there...or so she though.

McNeil's husband, Master Sergeant Nathan McNeil of the U.S. Air Force, decided to surprise his wife as he stood at the end of the stage waiting for her to see him. Master Sergeant Nathan McNeil has been deployed for 13 months in Alaska.

With a shocked look on her face, McNeil saw her husband and instantly gave him a hug while he handed her a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
