A girl from Mays Landing got the surprise of a lifetime when her dad, who just got back from a Navy deployment, surprised her in school.

Five-year-old Ava Skyy was sitting in class at St. Vincent DePaul Regional School when her father, Navy Gunner's Mate Second Class Frank Lockett, walked in, 6ABC.com reports.

He's been deployed for almost a year now and Ava's wish was to have her daddy home. Yesterday, she got her wish.
