I never tire of stories about servicemen and women being reunited with their families. This is what life is all about folks! This story is about Master Sgt. Joseph Martel, coming home from Afghanistan and surprising his son Justin -- and he did it at Justin's football game!  Justin is playing in a football game and doesn't realize that his father, MSgt Martel, is in the opposing team's uniform watching him play. When the son recognizes his father, it is an awesome scene! Definitely a tissue moment!

KNUE and Brookside Dental of Tyler, honor a "Hometown Hero" every week and we  invite you to nominate East Texas servicemen or women and any East Texas first responders who you believe should be the KNUE "Hometown Hero" of the Week.
