Airman surprises grandmother he hasn't seen in years

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Dressed in military fatigues and some of his family by his side, Kyle Richert, slipped into the back door of the Kitchen at Longhorn Steakhouse on Airport Road. The managers, several servers and even First Coast News were in on a big surprise that was about to pay off.

Stephanie Higbee, Richert's mother, took two months to plan the surprise. His grandmother, Shirley Campbell was completely unaware that Richert was in the United States, let alone in the same restaurant where she was. He hasn't seen her face-to-face in two-and-a-half years.
