PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- Tuesday night was a big night at Topsail High School.
Master Gunnery Sergeant Kenneth Kampen surprised his family when he stepped out to throw the opening pitch at Tuesday evening's game. The family have not seen their Dad since he left on his 8th tour in January and had no clue he was going to make a grand return home.
Kampen said he's excited to see his son graduate before he returns to Europe for three more months. He's also looking forward to coming home for good at the end of the tour and enjoying even more time with his family.
