Well before his deployment was over, Sergeant Nick Conrad made a Facebook post about his favorite baseball team, the Fort Wayne TinCaps. The Fort Wayne TinCaps are a Class-A affiliate of the San Diego Padres.
Members of the team’s office staff saw the post and decided to use it on their own Facebook page. Soon after, the staff and the Army Sergeant started talking to each other and the baseball team was coming up with an awesome idea.
The Conrad family lives in Leo, Indiana, a short drive from Fort Wayne. On August 29th, 2014, the family was invited out to the ballpark to watch a game.
Conrad’s family thought they were being honored for his service in the military…but they were in for the surprise of their life!
Nick surprised his family by coming home a month early from Kuwait. Check out the video to see the emotional reunion.Whizzco
