(ABC 6 NEWS) -- Many families will be without loved ones this holiday season. Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, away serving our country.
It's why community support for our military families during the holidays is so important.
Friday night was military appreciation night for the Austin Bruins, and for one family, they thought it was simply big thank you.
Little did they know, a surprise of a lifetime, was only feet away. Our Chris Kuball was there for the big moment.
