Danville Soldier Surprises Grandfather


Danville, VA - A Danville grandfather got the surprise of a lifetime Wednesday from his grandson who is a soldier who will soon be deployed overseas.

Chris Turner has been in training for about six months but didn't know until recently that he would have a few days off before he leaves for more training and then goes overseas.

Turner decided to take advantage of that time off to see his 83-year-old grandfather. The family arranged for the grandfather to go to the Danville Mall and Turner snuck up behind him.

"I just feel really good. That's all there is to it. I feel really good," said Emerson.

Turner leaves on Sunday for more training. He doesn't know for how long he will be gone.
