UNION COUNTY, N.C. -- A 6th grade East Union student got the surprise of his life Friday morning.  Drekius Tanner was sitting in class when he was told he had a visitor. 

When he turned around, his father Jermerick Rushing, who is a Petty Officer 3rd Class in the Navy, was at the door to his classroom.  Rushing had been deployed with the US Marines since August 2013.
