Houston Texans Surprise Fallen Marines Family [VIDEO]

This Christmas will be the first that Sarah Wood and her little boy Landon will spend without their husband and father Scott.  Marine Staff Sargent ,Scott Wood passed away this November after wounds suffered in Iraq.

Scott was a loyal Texans fan, something the franchise went out of its way to recognize during Sunday’s game against the Panthers at Reliant Stadium. As part of their “Home for the Holidays” program, Sarah and her 5-year-old son, Landon, were given a generous bundle of gifts and a nice tribute was played in memory of Scott…But then came the big surprise.

The gesture overwhelmed Sarah, bringing her to tears during the halftime ceremony, along with many others.  Sarah said her husband was a huge Texans fan that never missed a game.In fact,  the day he was buried she dressed him in an Andre Johnson jersey under his military uniform.

“I’m amazed and shocked and honored,” Wood said. “So many people are coming together in Scott’s honor and doing this.”
