Who doesn't love a military homecoming? No one! Now, who doesn't love a military homecoming -- at a football game? Five members of the incredibly cute Faile family from Kershaw, South Carolina, were at a Gamecocks game a few days ago. And they were the Columbia Metropolitan Airport Military Family of the Game, set to be recognized on the field.
While they were on the field, cheering and being generally adorable, they got a surprise. A great surprise! A message from their dad/husband, Sergeant First Class Scott Faile, came on the video board.
But then, as you may be suspecting, they got an even bigger surprise. And it's awesome.
If that didn't give you a nice warm, fuzzy feeling inside, not sure what will, m'friend. And you must admit, the reunion was made all the more exciting by the fact that they ran -- no, sprinted -- to their dad in front of thousands of screaming fans.
In a word: Awesome. Though I hope the Faile family -- or anyone at that game -- doesn't think they're ever going to see a game that invigorating any time again soon. This is one for the highlights reel if we've ever seen it.
How great is this? What's the best military homecoming you've ever seen?
