Operation Emma

by Joe Cassady

Maj. Jake Brittingham had been stationed in Africa for the past five months, and he's been badly missed by his daughter Emma. So to surprise her, he showed up at her first gymnastics competition. Dad came home early, arrived at the gym and hid. Operation Surprise Emma was a go.

Leave it to someone with military training to execute such a successful and well-planned mission. Mission accomplished.
