Georgia Southern University celebrated Military Appreciation Day on Saturday for its home game against The Citadel at Paulson Stadium in Statesboro.
During a break in the action, three children, whose father had been stationed in Korea, were invited onto the field to record a welcome home video for their father, who was to supposed to return home Sunday. After saying a few words, the three led a Georgia Southern chant before being instructed to turn around, where their father was waiting -– home a day early.
What followed was a beautiful and moving moment that words can’t properly summarize. Take a look at the video.
