Dad shocks son in touching reunion at football game

- December 19th, 2013

Since it’s the Christmas season, we’ll step back from the usual content posted to this blog for a nice little piece that will melt your heart.

It’s all about the video (seriously, if this doesn’t tug at your heart-strings, nothing will) but we’ll give you a little back story to fill in the details.

Master Sergeant Joseph Martel, a U.S. airman, returned to Germany from deployment in Afghanistan earlier than his son, Justin, expected. Dad figured he’d surprise his son during his football game in Brussels, Belgium. (Who knew they played football in Belgium?)

I mean, the last guy he’d ever expect to see lining up across from him on the football field was his dad, right?

When Justin’s dad revealed himself during a meeting at midfield, the reaction was priceless. And incredibly touching.
