Military dad surprises local teen. Alicia Vitarelli reports during Action News at 9 a.m. on November 12, 2017. (WPVI)

It was quite a special surprise for a Delaware County teen Veterans Day weekend.

Jasmine Vega, a freshman at Archbishop Carroll High School, was attending her school's father-daughter dance on Friday night.

What she didn't know was her military father was waiting off to the side to surprise her.

Army Warrant Officer Wally Vega, a veteran of the war in Afghanistan, was most recently stationed in Texas and had not seen his daughter in six months.

It was a heartwarming surprise and reunion!

Fittingly, they were granted the first dance.
