NBC News Producer Shocks Mom By Arranging Army Sister’s Surprise Return

By Chris Ariens 

Bianca Seward, an associate producer for NBC News based in Atlanta, concocted a Christmas surprise for her mom.

Bianca’s sister Army 1st Lt. Macaela Seward is based overseas. After graduating from Wake Forest, Macaela Seward trained at Ft. Leonard Wood, Missouri (where this writer’s father had his Army training in 1954). Macaela then moved to an Army Aviation Base in South Korea.
