However, one family member was missing: his father, David Castillo, a petty officer first class in the U.S. Navy.

Castillo didn’t know his father would turn an important milestone into an unforgettable night.

Castillo’s father surprised his son as cheers erupted from the graduation crowd.

Castillo is stationed aboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt in the South China Sea. He boarded a plane in Singapore, beginning an approximately 17-hour trek back home to San Antonio.

Castillo arrived at the graduation ceremony less than an hour before the ceremony began, the San Antonio Independent School District said in a news release.

In a video shared by the district, Castillo said he would spend the next two weeks with his family before returning to his naval duties in the South China Sea.
