One Sailor and his family especially enjoyed the Jacksonville Jaguars hosting a military appreciation game against the Indianapolis Colts at EverBank Field, Nov. 8.
While the action on the field was the main focus for more than 60,000 screaming fans, a moment that had nothing to do with football may have produced the loudest cheers. The entire stadium was on its feet as Construction Mechanic 1st Class William Cook ran out of the tunnel to meet his wife and daughters during halftime.
Cook, who is assigned to Construction Battalion Maintenance Unit (CMBU) 202 on board Naval Air Station (NAS) Jacksonville, spent the last 10 months deployed to Afghanistan as an individual augmentee (IA). He had not seen his family since last Christmas, and his family was completely unaware that he was coming home. But thanks to the Jacksonville Jaguars and his chain of command, he was able to reunite with his family earlier than expected. The event was even more special to Williams and his family because it just happened to be his daughter’s 21st birthday.

“Adam was in Iraq for six months and this video is his reunion with his pregnant wife, Lindsey. It was a very emotional moment (and long wait)! It was a truly patriotic time where everyone was so thankful for what the soldiers have done, but also so grateful that they were home.”

Senior Night for High School student Elizabeth Randau and her sister, 7th grader Lilly, will be one the two girls will not soon forget. The girls’ dad, Sgt. Major John Randau, made a surprise appearance while Elizabeth was standing center field with her mother.

“It’s great, just great,” exclaimed Elizabeth just moments after embracing her dad.

Sgt. Major Randu has been deployed to Afghanistan with the 115th ESB Alabama Army National Guard, stationed out of Florence, Alabama for the last year, leaving behind his four children, Elizabeth, 17, Lilly, 13, Reagan, 8, and Alex, 18, in the care of his family and friends.
