TULSA, Oklahoma -- It was a heartwarming homecoming for several families as more members of Oklahoma's 45th return from Afghanistan.

Among the five soldiers that returned home Wednesday was Lieutenant Colonel Todd Chisum. His sons had no idea their dad was coming home after five long months overseas.

Little Tyler couldn't help but jump for joy.

"This is the greatest day of my life, and I've been waiting for this day to come," Tyler said.

Tyler's mom kept the secret all the way to the airport. Colonel Chisum is set to head back to Afghanistan in two weeks.
