The Faile family from Kershaw, South Carolina, was the Columbia Metropolitan Airport Military Family of the Game, set to be recognized on the field. 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. The Gamecocks would go on to beat Georgia, 35-7, just as Sgt. Faile predicted.
These videos always get me. It's like watching Old Yeller get the gun. Not many people realize the sacrifices the soldiers and their families have to go through in order to keep our freedoms. Tip of the hat to the University of South Carolina for pulling this off and making these strange water droplets come out of my eyes on a Monday morning.
