Master Sergeant Joseph Martel recently returned home from deployment and wanted to surprise his son!
Wow! What a beautiful moment on the 50-Yard Line of a football field. His son, practically a grown man himself, broke down in tears and understandably so. This has to be one of the best military surprise return home around.
Master Sergeant Joseph Martel served overseas in Afghanistan with the United States Air Force. Thank you for your service Master Sergeant Martel and thanks for letting us share in your very special moment!
These videos get me every time! If they don’t get you I am not sure we should know each other. I cried instantly once the father took off his helmet. We need to be more mindful when we are complaining about our problems because there is always someone who has it worse. The son lived everyday not knowing if he will get news that his father was killed in Afghanistan protecting our rights while we sit here and complain about our iPhone being slow or our order at Applebees being incorrect.
Take the time this holiday season to think of those that have family members that are deployed and serving our great country! If you are truly moved you can check out Adopt a US Solider to find ways to can support our troops that are deployed.
