Soldier's surprise reunion for his Georgia family
ATLANTA, G.A. (WHDH) -- A Georgia family was re-united in front of thousands as a soldier returns home.
The family was told they were contest winners for "Military Family of the Game".
Sergeant First Class Scott Faile appeared on the big screen with a special message for his family.
What they didn't know is that he was about to step out of the tunnel and surprise them in front of 85,000 people.
"I didn’t think I was going to make it to the big group hug because some people like to try and trip others or pull them back. I'm thinking this one's going to trip me," said Faile's daughter of the family running to Scott.
"It was amazing. We were just ecstatic. In that moment it was just us four again," said Faile's wife.
Scott had been working on his plan for three months in the lead-up to the reunion.
