EUSTIS, FL 10/28/2011 --

It all went down at the neighborhood Chick-Fil-A.

24-year-old Amy Reed knew her husband Army Staff Sgt. Chris Reed was coming home from Afghanistan soon, but she didn't know when.

So Amy's dad hatched a plan to stage a reunion at Chick-Fil-A.

"I honestly could not believe it... I thought it was a dream... I thought If I screamed I would wake up," said Reed.

Staff Sgt. Chris Reed just left to report back to Ft. Drum in New York. In May the family will transfer to a base in Missouri. Bottom line, no more deployments.
