Allison Garcia 16, is surprised Saturday by her cousin, Army Pfc. Anthony Rodarte.
Allison, a junior at Elk Grove High School, had planned to attend her school's junior prom by herself. But Rodarte, who returned from a nine-month deployment in Afghanistan three days ago, made a surprise visit to escort her to the dance.
The two, along with family members, had dinner at a restaurant before the prom.
