By Brandon Troullier - bio | email

 CARLYSS, LA (KPLC) - Dominick Young, a kindergartner at Vincent Settlement Elementary School was sitting down with the rest of his classmates, listening to their teacher, waiting for the school day to end.

A man walked into their room and when he looked up, he saw it was his dad, Private 1st Class Brandon Young.  Dominick just like the rest of his family wasn't expecting his dad for another ten days.

The room lit up with so much emotion as he pick up his son and hugged him so tight. On Thursday he will be deploying for duty to Iraq for one year with a possible two week pass in October.  Private Young said that it's tough leaving him(Dominick) but that's what duty calls.
