There was a sweet surprise Monday morning for a military family in Schenectady.

Sgt. 1st Class William Rhodes surprised his four kids during a special assembly.

Rhodes was deployed last June to Kuwait. He has triplets in kindergarten and a third grader.

Assemblyman Angelo Santabarbara presented a U.S. flag to the family.
