218th soldier sees his son walk for the first time

WEST COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - After a year in Afghanistan, one Midlands dad got to see his son walk for the very first time Wednesday.

When Major Victor Adams left for Afghanistan, he was looking forward to coming home to this.

Major Adams' son, Kevin, was born with cerebral palsy. Before his father was deployed, he lost his ability to walk.

But through hard work at physical therapy, he was able to walk to his father and hug him when he returned to West Columbia Wednesday afternoon.

Adams had seen his son walk before. Kevin's dad got to see him walk on the State House steps via webcam, but that hardly compares to seeing it in person.
