SMA student reunites with dad


San Marcos Academy (SMA) seventh grader Aaron Warren gets a bear hug from his father, returning veteran James Kelly, who surprised him with a visit at last Friday’s SMA pep rally.


An unexpected visit turned a pep rally at San Marcos Academy last Friday into a “pop” rally, as SMA seventh grader Aaron Warren’s dad showed up to visit him.

Warren’s dad, James Kelly, has just finished his seven-month tour in Iraq serving in the Army Signal Corps at Camp Victory until the president recalled all combat troops from Iraq this week.

Kelly surprised his son with a visit during the SMA pep rally Friday morning.

“There wasn’t a dry eye in the house,” said SMA Communications Director Shelley Henry.

Kelly is now stationed at Fort Hood.
