An emotional family reunion took place on the field of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, in Gainesville, when Chief Warrant Officer Kristian Denkins walked onto ‘The Swamp’ to surprise his waiting family.

The Denkins family had been on the field in belief that they were receiving a special message from Denkins in Afghanistan and were understandably overcome with emotion when he ran out onto the field as well.


Thank you for your service, Office Denkins.
