Marine Corporal Dakota Miller surprised his 8-year-old sister, Isabella Corwell, when he walked into her second grade classroom at Barbara Bush Primary School Friday afternoon. He was given a hero’s welcome when he arrived at the school, as students and staff waved American flags and cheered him on.

Miller is stationed in California at Camp Pendleton following a two-year deployment to Okinawa and one month in the Philippines. He joined the United States Marine Corps after graduating from Rains High School in 2015.
