At some point, military families who are honored on the field at sporting events while their husband/wife/father/mother is supposed to be deployed will catch on that something is up.

But on Sunday night, the streak of surprises continued.

The Lemasters family was honored before Sunday night's Steelers-Bengals game, and thought that U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Cory J. Lemasters was still deployed in Afghanistan.

Then Lemasters came out through the tunnel to the wonderful surprise of his family, who embraced him.

No matter how many times that scene plays out in stadiums, it's always special.
