A Staff Sergeant surprised his family recently, after buying them tickets to a New England Patriots game. Warning - there wasn't a dry eye in the house!

Tickets to a New England Patriots game would make a pretty awesome Christmas present! And that's just what Staff Sergeant Shawn Hogan gave his family, sending them to Monday's game against the Tennessee Titans.

They may not have been surprised to see a video of Shawn, wishing them a Merry Christmas, on the scoreboard. But they seemed pretty surprised when he came running down the aisle! Get the tissues because this one just might bring a tear to your eye. Merry Christmas, Hogan family!

The best part of yesterday's Thank You Fans festivities: welcome home Staff Sergeant Shawn Hogan!
