Petty Officer LaQualla Richardson came home from deployment much earlier than expected.
Producers decided to reveal Richardson to her family through a game similar to "Let's Make a Deal."
The mother of three says it was hard to by away from her family, but she made it work/
"It was hard. I've never been away that long, it was difficult for sure. It's the little things, so my husband took a lot of pictures and we emailed everyday. I worked a lot, maybe 15 hours a day so that helped a little bit"}
Richardson is a Hampton Roads native. Hersons range in age from two to 12-years-old.
