The Faile family from Kershaw, South Carolina, was the Columbia Metropolitan Airport Military Family of the Game. Their first surprise was a message to them from their dad/husband, Sergeant First Class Scott Faile, playing on the video board, followed by an even bigger surprise.

Listen to the crowd roar…

WLTX reported on the soldier surprise:

Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium gave USC a lot of thrills–but not all of them were from what took place during the game.

The Faile family of Kershaw, SC, got a special surprise when Sergeant First Class Scott Faile (who’s stationed in Korea) surprised them on the field.

Here’s how it played out. The family (his wife two children) were brought onto the field as the Columbia Metropolitan Airport Military Family of the Game. They then saw a videotaped message from Sgt. Faile, explaining how much he loved and appreciated their support. At the end of the message, Faile said how he wished he could be there with them to see the Gamecocks beat up on Georgia.

However, right as that message ended, Faile came out of one of the tunnels of the stadium and walked onto the field. His family raced over to hug him, and the crowd roared in approval.

  1. There aren’t words to express the debt we owe families like the Failes.

    I loved that Mom outran the kids to get to Sergeant Faile. :-)

  2. Words always escape me but the tears never do. Thank you to all who serve and to their families for the sacrifices they make. I honor them.

    [October 7 marks the 11th anniversary of the War in Afghanistan. It
    marks 11 long years after the United States military entered into war in
    response to the September 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 civilians.]

    Thank You!!

    It Has Always Been The Soldier

    It is the soldier,
    not the President who gives US Democracy.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Congress who takes Care of US.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Reporter who has given us Freedom of Press.

    It is the soldier,
    not the Poet who has given us Freedom of Speech.

    It is the soldier,
    not the campus [community] Organizer who
    has given us the Freedom to Demonstrate.

    It is the soldier,
    who salutes the flag;
    who serves beneath the flag,
    and whose coffin is draped by the flag,
    that allows the protester to burn the flag.

    ~ Father Dennis O’Brien, US Marine Corp. Chaplain

    God Bless America!

    God Bless Soldiers everywhere for putting THEIR
    lives on the line to protect us ALL from terrorism!

    “Lord, hold our troops in your loving hands. Protect them as
    they protect us. Bless them and their families for the selfless
    acts they perform for us in our time of need. Please place a
    hedge of protection around each and everyone. I ask this in
    the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen.”



  5. OT – must watch Fox News Reporting Special, on right now and re-airing later tonight. Called “Obama’s Green Agenda” …. the part about the true meaning of “Sustainability” will make your hair stand on end! Watch or DVR it!

  6. Always, the tears. How thankful we are to this beautiful family.
    May the Lord bless them and all who serve; who’re willing to sacrifice so much.

    Welcome Home Sergeant First Class Scott Faile


  12. WOW!


    BTW: i gotta throw a penalty flag: mom grabbed her daughter’s t shirt at 2:20 mark.


  13. My wife told me today that she met a WW 2 veteran today. She thanked him and hugged him for his service.

    Seeing the family’s reaction and hearing the roar of the crowd makes me think that there are Americans who love this country and support the military.

    Welcome home!

  14. Just wonderful, God Bless them.

    Thank you, for posting. Brings tears of Joy from my heart.

  15. Welcome home Sergeant First Class Scott Faile and thank you for your service.

    These welcome home’s never get old and never fail to choke me up. This one was simply awesome. Chears to the University of SC for making it happen.

  16. if everyone who says they love our military people got up off their lazy, fat behinds and voted for the pro-military candidate(s) then a demonstration of love can be shown this November.

    Remember all the stories about how Democrats have been denying our military their Right to Vote. Don’t ever forget, even though State media has not publicized that scandal.
