VIDEO: Marine surprises family at Tampa Bay Lightning game
A Marine stationed in Afghanistan surprised his family by showing up at the Tampa Bay Lightning game Saturday.
These are just the best.
Capt. Matthew Lunn, a Riverview, Fla., native had been serving in Afghanistan. His family was invited to the Tampa Bay Lightning game against the Pittsburgh Penguins Saturday to be honored during the team’s regular standing military salute, normally reserved for soldiers. The Lighting public address announcer said the team was switching things up to honor the sacrifices made by military families at home, which can often be forgotten.
Capt. Lunn filmed a video message to his family “from the other side of the world” as the PA announcer claimed.
After Lunn’s video message played on the scoreboard, he shocked his family by walking over to them on the concourse receiving a warm welcome and rousing cheers from the Tampa Bay crowd.
According to the Tampa Tribune, Lunn is a 19-year veteran of the Marine Corps and has served two tours of duty in Iraq and another in Aghanistan with the Joint Special Operations Task Force.
