Michelle Martin: Local soldier surprises nephew at homecoming in Boca Raton on Saturday

BOCA RATON, Fla. - A local soldier decided to surprise some of her family Saturday by going straight from the battlefield, to the football field.

Michelle Martin surprised her nephew Max at his Boca Raton All-Star football game.  She ran out onto the football during a timeout to give him some water.

Martin spent the past 9 months in Afghanistan.  She landed earlier Saturday, and decided to surprise her nephew since it was his last game of the year.

"I saw her running out and I was so happy, and I had seen this before and had dreams about it, because one time my dad came out, and I thought man that would be cool if Blaine did that," said Max Martin.

Martin is done with her tour.  She plans to spend the rest of this weekend catching up with family and friends.
