Tears of joy flowed Friday morning at Autumn Acres Corn Maze near Crossville, as United States Air Force Staff Sgts. Thomas and Kim McCallister returned from a 7-month deployment in Southwest Asia.

The McCallisters arrived at Knoxville’s McGee Tyson Airport at approximately 9:30 a.m. from their deployment and drove straight to Autumn Acres to surprise their two children, 6-year-old Kalin and 2-year-old Kamdyn. Kalin and Kamdyn were on a school field trip.
