Teacher Regina Benzing got a most welcome surprise at a recent school assembly. She thought she was calling out students of the month, but instead saw her own son’s name, Eric Benzing.
Eric, who had been deployed overseas with the Air Force since September, shared a long hug with his mother at her Long Island, N.Y., elementary school. “It’s good to hold my boy,” she told WCBS.
“I’ve been waiting a long time to put my arms around him.”
