LEBANON, Tenn. (CIRCA via WZTV) — A soldier came home and surprised his 9-year-old son at a martial arts center Monday night. The reunion didn't leave a dry eye.

Staff Sgt. Rob Cesternino returned home from active duty and surprised his 9-year-old son, Luca, at his karate studio. When Rob was deployed in early 2018, he served as a city council member in Lebanon.

Cesternino was awarded with an honorary black belt during the event. Luca also received an honorary belt for bravery at the Success Martial Arts Center.
