AFC Kristina Marie North received the surprise of a lifetime when she arrived at the Atlanta Airport from Airforce Basic and advanced training at Lackland Air Force Base, San Antonio, Texas on April 18, 2012.

Kristina and her parents, Alton and Lisa North of Centralhatchee, Georgia, had carefully planned on her father meeting her at the airport so she could surprise her younger brothers and sisters at school and home.

Much to Kristina’s surprise, CNN’s Robin Meade was there and she filmed the emotional homecoming. AFC North was honored on Robin Meade’s “Salute to the Troops” on CNN April 23, 2012. The video can be viewed on www.HLNTV.com.
