A soldier surprises his wife with a return trip home after seven months apart in front of a packed house at First Arena.
“I had to find a way to kind of hide it, and at the same time not lie,” said Spc. Joey Daghita of Troupsburg. “So I figured out how to do that so far, and so far it’s worked.” Spc. Daghita is home from his third tour in Kuwait on deployment leave. His wife Brittany doesn’t know he’s home, but her brother and Ziff Law Firm are helping him make the night special.
But the trip back home wasn’t easy. “He’s in Fort Rucker and there is some mix-up with his flight going to Atlanta,” said Annette Viselli Thorne of Ziff Law Firm, who helped organize the surprise.
