An emotional reunion was caught on camera as a soldier returning from overseas gets to see his daughter again in Mexico, Missouri.

U.S. Army soldier Zach Clovis returned late last week from a tour of duty in Syria and planned to surprise his four-year-old daughter Isabella at daycare.

Instead, he got a little surprise of his own.

During his return to town, the local community came out to make the soldier's visit special.

Clovis was escorted by dozens of local motorcyclists to Isabella's daycare. He said the community support means a lot to his family.

"It's been really busy especially with two kids, and going to school, and working full-time. It's just been pretty chaotic," said Clovis' wife Kara.

Clovis greeted his daughter with a bouquet of flowers and a huge hug. Isabella says she can't wait to go fishing with her dad but also remind him to build her a treehouse this summer .
