Daniel Yoder, a helicopter pilot in the Army National Guard, surprised his wife, Jaimie, with his appearance at the Old Spaghetti Factory in Fresno on Saturday, Nov. 21, 2015. Yoder had been stationed in Texas and unable to afford a trip home, but friends from Northside Christian Church in Clovis paid for his plane ticket so he could be with his family during Thanksgiving week.
