Good luck not choking up during this one. Per NESN...
quote:

"Master Sergeant Joseph Martel returned early from a tour of Afghanistan in September, something his wife was aware of but his son, Justin, was not. Justin’s football team was playing a game in Brussels, Belgium, and Joseph came up with the idea to disguise himself as a player for the opposing team. Joseph watched his son from the sideline until the referees called a meeting at midfield — under the guise of reviewing safety protocol — during which Joseph revealed himself, and the two enjoyed a tearful and heartwarming reunion."
