Soldier surprises kids at their schools

HEWITT, Tx. (WILX) -- A Fort Hood soldier surprised her two children at their schools after being deployed in Kuwait for the past nine-months.

Twelve year old Jaiceybelle Hunter had no idea who's really underneath the mascot mask at her school, and when the panther head comes off, Hunter finds out it's her mom, Sergeant Lacey Poltratskiy.

But this wasn't the only stop for the sergeant.

She also popped in on her five-year-old son Dalton's school who was told there was a guest speaker coming to his class. and that guess speaker turned out to be his mom.
