Alley Robison, a senior at Harding University in Searcy, Ark., reacts to a surprise visit by her father, U.S. Air Force Col. Elmo Robison. 

Alley was walking to the podium to make an announcement during a recent chapel assembly when her father, who had been deployed in Afghanistan, caught her attention. 
“I turned around and I was just speechless and so thankful that he’s back and safe,” Alley told KATV
Harding President Bruce McLarty said, “It was one of those special days in chapel that causes everyone to feel that they are part of the same family. On that day, it was Alley’s family, and you knew that everyone shared their joy.” 
The Robisons attend the Denbigh Church of Christ in Newport News, Va.
