COLONIE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Remember how scary it was to get called to the principal’s office at school? Well this time, it was for a good reason.
On Tuesday a 10th grader got a huge surprise.
Shaker High School student Cameron Martinez was called to the main office to supposedly meet with Principal Murphy. Instead, he came face to face with his brother Ethan, a member of the Airborne Division of the U.S. Army, who hadn’t been home since September 2014.
“We looked at each other and just broke down,” said Cameron. “I couldn’t believe I was seeing him.”
Ethan Martinez, a 2014 Shaker graduate, specializes in geospatial intelligence in the army, and is currently stationed in Kuwait.
After his surprise visit, he was able to spend a week at home with his family and friends.
