Facebook Contest Helps Soldier Surprise his Family

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - A U.S. Army sergeant was able to suprise his four daughters after his wife won a contest on Facebook and flew him home.

Casey Boyette, a combat engineer, is stationed at Fort Bliss, Texas, and had been separated from his family since March.

He met his daugthers, Destiny 9, Aaliyah, 7, Adriana, 2, and Ava, 1, at
the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.

His wife, Misty Boyette, won $5,000 in a contest from BBVA Compass on Facebook.

She used part of the money to fly her husband home.

In her contest entry, Misty Boyette, a stay-at-home mom and volunteer cheerleader coach, said she needed the money to pay bills and a loan and to reunite with her husband.
