Carroll Independent School District students and brothers Jake and Zack Marshall rang in the New Year with a moment that they will remember forever. 

Both brothers received an unexpected visit from their father Capt. Johnny Marshall of Southlake this week after serving the past 16 months in Africa. 

Capt. Marshall made a direct trip to his son's campuses after arriving at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport Wednesday morning. 

He made his first stop at Eubanks Intermediate to surprise his sixth grader Jake during his Physical Education class. Principal Deena Steeber led Marshall to Jake's class, accompanied by relatives to the gym. 

Afterward, Marshall made his way to Dawson Middle School and surprised his seventh grader Zack. 

The family left Dawson Middle School, amid a patriotic show of support by Principal Ryan Wilson, students and staff members.

The entire event of Marshall's return home was captured on video, which can be viewed below.
