Soldier Returns Home to Surprise Brothers at Pacers Game

Kyle NewportFeatured ColumnistMarch 3, 2014

Monday night's game between the Indiana Pacers and the Utah Jazz gave one family a memory that will last a lifetime.

Two Pacers fans were brought out onto the court to take part in a shooting contest. They won $300, so it was a pretty good night for them.

However, the money took a backseat to what would happen next.

The fans' brother, who had been stationed in Afghanistan, surprised them at the other end of the court. His surprise appearance sent one brother down to the ground in amazement, and it brought the crowd to its feet.
