Leo Longoria is a specialist in the Arizona Army National Guard and also works as a member of the Arizona Cardinals staff in the cafeteria.
When the organization learned that Longoria was being deployed later that night, they decided to do something special to honor him, his commitment to the organization, and his commitment to the country.
Credit Cardinals front office man Michael Bidwell and head coach Steve Wilks for orchestrating this and getting the whole team on board. You can tell it was a powerful moment for specialist Longoria.
If you love those military reunion videos half as much as I do, you’re going to really enjoy this.
Specialist Leo Longoria is an integral member of the Cardinals kitchen staff and in the Arizona Army National Guard. He is being deployed this evening. This morning, he thought he was stopping by Cards HQ to bid farewell to his coworkers. The team had something else in mind. pic.twitter.com/PuhQrCkauV
