Dan Lieber, a U.S. Army veteran with 34 years of experience in the military, surprised his sons, Joe and Eddie, at Cassell Elementary School on May 21, the day he arrived home after a 13-month deployment in the Middle East.

The family then walked to their home, where they were greeted by supporters including the Chicago Fire Department, of which Lieber is a 20-year veteran.

Joe and Eddie said they hope to play hockey, go to Cubs and White Sox games, and take bike rides with their dad now that he's home for an extended period of time.

A full story will appear in the May 29 issue.
