Video: The Swamp hosted an emotional military reunion on Saturday

A Florida family was surprised with a military reunion at The Swamp on Saturday during the Old Miss game.

Chief Warrant Officer Kristian Denkins arrived back on American soil after a fifth tour of duty in Afghanistan and surprised his wife and four children during the game. Of course, the ESPN cameras were there to capture the emotional moment.

At first, they just showed Denkins on the big board, and the family didn't realize he was less than a hundred yards away until he started to jog out of the tunnel towards them and that's when the moment hit them.

Not only did this family experience the moment of a lifetime in front of a hundred thousand fans, but the Gators went on to stomp Ole Miss 38-10 to put the icing on the cake.
