Watch This AMAZING Surprise For a Returning Military Vet!

While the Florida Gators upset of the then-ranked #3 Ole Miss Rebels was a story in and of itself, there was another story to emerge from that game and it’s probably one of the best videos you’ll see online this week.

A military family got to have an emotional homecoming on the field.

According to Uproxx:

Chief Warrant Officer Kristian Denkins just arrived back in the States from Afghanistan, where he recently completed his fifth tour of duty, before reuniting with his wife and four children in front of a packed Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.

Military homecoming videos are usually pretty emotional and special, but this one was a little extra awesome considering we got to see Officer Denkins sprinting onto the field in uniform to hug his family. As is usually the case, he was met by lots of smiles and lots of tears.

Watch this super video:

I had to compose myself just to write this! This was a huge surprise for the family and I enjoyed it right along with them. I served in the military for eight years and it’s a remarkable thing to surprise your family after all they have gone through and sacrificed.

Welcome home soldier!

Make sure to share this great video on your social media timeline. Bring a smile to someone in your circle. This will also bring a tear.
