JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A soldier's family received the surprise of the their life while eating at a local restaurant - and it was all caught on video.

Sgt. Allyson Logan had just recently returned home to Mississippi after serving 9 months in Afghanistan. 

Chimneyville Smokehouse helped Logan with the surprise by letting her sneak in the back and pretend to be a server.

When Logan's mother, Ann Smith, saw her for the first time, she had shock and happiness written all over her face - in fact, it took a minute for her to catch her breath.

Logan's sister, Mandy, says they were all amazed at how sweet everyone at Chimneyville was and that it was the perfect surprise. 

Welcome home Sgt. Logan and thank you for serving our country!
