Special performance for local Air Force dad

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – After an 11-month tour in Afghanistan Lt. Colonel Matthew Douglas missed the last performance of his daughter’s first high school play, by just one day.

“Utter shock, I think, surprised, very surprised,” Lt. Colonel Douglas said when he was surprised by the drama department at Dayton Christian High School when they decided to reunite the Springboro family Monday night.

Lt. Colonel Douglas says that this will be his last deployment as he plans to retire soon, so he can be there for all of his daughter’s future performances.
