RICHMOND, Virginia—Saturday was an unforgettable homecoming for a family whose father was stationed overseas.

At last weekend’s South Carolina-Georgia college football game the Faile family was recognized at halftime as the “Military Family of the Game,” reported WTVR.com.

Their father appeared on the jumbo-tron with a message for them, but that was only half of the surprise. He then appeared in the end zone where his family ran to him in front of the 85,000 people filling the stadium.

Video of the event was posted to YouTube, and it already has more than 700,000 views.
