Words can't do this tear-jerker of a homecoming video much justice, but here's a brief synopsis: Faile's wife, son and daughter were honored as the "military family of the game" with an on-field ceremony before South Carolina's home game against Georgia on Saturday.

The game's 85,000 attending fans were audibly touched as they watched the family receive a video-board message from Faile, who's been serving in Korea. But when Faile walked onto the field in full uniform seconds later, his family and the packed stands completely lost their cool.
