Marine Surprises Wife At Football Game

Posted: Updated:

A Marine Corp Captain surprises his family with some help from the Detroit Lions football team.

His wife Michelle thought that the Lions were honoring her family for being a military family. She did not know that her husband was waiting just a few feet away.

As they stood on the field in front of 62,000 people, a video of Munsee in Afghanistan played on the big screen. In the video, Munsee said hello to the crowd and told his family he missed them. A second video then showed of Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford thanking Munsee for his service and welcoming him home.

And then Munsee ran onto the field to screams and cheers from fans.

Captain Joshua Munsee was almost killed during his three tours of duty in Afghanistan. When he found out that he was coming home early, he got in touch with the Detroit Lions to plan a homecoming that his family would never forget.

"The worst part of the separation, which creates frustration, just not being able to help out around the house." Capt. Munsee said.

And while his family had fun watching the game, his son Henry says that he can't wait to go running with his dad.

Munsee's wife says that having her husband home for Thanksgiving is a priceless gift.
