Military service member surprises sisters at Washington Elementary School

ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Two girls get a heartwarming surprise today as their older sister returns back to Rockford from serving in the military. 

Master-at-arms Juliana Solis has been stationed at the Guantanamo Bay Naval base in Cuba. She surprised her sisters today at Washington Elementary School. 

It's been a year and a half since she's seen them. 

"Being far away, and this is my first big time being away from home, so it's normally just FaceTime when I see them so being home, it's a chance I take whenever I get," Solis said. 

Solis says it's also cool to see her sisters at Washington Elementary, which is where she attended before graduating from Jefferson High School.
