via YouTube Captain Josh Munsee, a Marine from Grand Rapids, is all about surprising his wife.  During Sunday’s Buccaneers-Lions game, he gave her a surprise he probably won’t be able to top.  He was scheduled to come home in February 2014 after a tour in Iraq and two in Afghanistan.  When he found out he was coming home early, his boss helped him cook up an idea. Per WXYZ.com, Josh visited the Lions website, clicked on the ‘Contact Us’ link, and heard from the team two days later. “We gotta make this happen,” Lions Vice President of Marketing Jennifer Cadicamo said. Through Skype and emails, Cadicamo coordinated Munsee’s visit to Detroit. The Grand Rapids native was completing his third term overseas, away for four months from his wife and three young children. On Sunday with Munsee’s wife and children on the field, Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford thanked Munsee on the big screen.  Stafford acted as though that was the end of the message and started to put his helmet on before looking back at the camera and announcing, ”Welcome home, Captain Munsee.” Munsee sprinted out of the side tunnel, immediately leaving his wife in tears.  At that point in the video, expect the air to get dusty and your “allergies” to kick up. Well played, Lions.  And thank you for all you do, Captain Munsee, and to the rest of our troops helping to provide us freedom. [WXYZ]
