B-Roll & Soundbites: U.S. Soldier Returns from Afghanistan to a Joyous Walt Disney World Reunion

Filed in: Epcot

Children of SPC Scott Halquist of St. Cloud, Fla. got more than a patriotic concert by the Voices of Liberty Wednesday at the American Adventure pavilion at Epcot.  After the popular choral group had finished, Halquist was announced as a surprise special guest – to the wide-eyed delight of his kids Joshua 2; Jack 7; and Grace 8. Scott’s wife Amy, working with Walt Disney World Resort, helped arrange the homecoming surprise for their kids.  They got their dad back after a 10-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.  The reunited family has 2 weeks together before Halquist returns to Afghanistan for 45 days. Halquist’s specialty is medical support in the war zone, tending to the most critical patients.
