Yesterday, Nov. 3rd, I got to witness one of the most special moments in these little boys lives.  During half time at the ECU v. Houston game these two boys were called onto the field to compete in a half time challenge.  Before they started their father came on the jumbotron to do a “Military Shout Out” that are done throughout any home football game at ECU.  It was the youngest boys birthday and his dad gave him a special shout out and said that he missed them both dearly.  As the older brother started the halftime challenge you could see his younger brother wiping away tears behind him.  Once they both had finished their father, Joshua Ricafrente, a staff Sergent in the Marines who had been in Afghanistan came out to surprise them.  Watching those two little boys run to their dad made me sob.  Such a beautiful sight.
