I'm warning you now, you'll need the tissues for this :)

When Master Sgt. Joseph Martell returned home from deployment in Afghanistan a month early, he took it as an opportunity to surprise his teenage son. After landing, he and his wife headed straight to Brussels, Belgium, to his son Justin's high school football game. While showing up at the game unannounced probably would have been surprise enough, Martell took it a step further. He put on the opposing team's jersey and joined his son on the playing field when the referee called a meeting on the 50-yard line. It takes Justin all of three seconds to recognize his dad once the U.S. airman removes his helmet.

 

During this Christmas season, let's remember all of our service personnel who haven't been reunited with their families, as well as the families who carry on while their loved ones are serving our country.
