PLAINVIEW, TX (KCBD) - A Plainview family and local residents received a surprise Wednesday during the town's annual parade when a soldier made an unexpected appearance.

Joe Jimenez returned home after being deployed in Germany, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania and Italy for the past nine months, according to a City of Plainview Facebook video. His unannounced return was put on display after the participants stopped and Jimenez jumped out of a parade vehicle.

After getting out of the vehicle Jimenez ran over to his wife, Jessica Jimenez and their 2-year-old son Urijah.
