A cheerleader for the Washington Redskins got the shock of her life recently when her husband, a Marine Corps Lieutenant, surprised her at practice after returning home early from a tour of duty.
“My legs turned to jello,” Kristin Edick said of the moment her husband, Denver Edick, walked into her team’s dance studio. After serving tours of duties in Afghanistan and Iraq, he wasn’t supposed to return home until July, but he was allowed to leave early.
Kristin had been practicing all night with her team for a big game, unaware that her husband was about to walk in. Her dance coach, however, was in on the surprise, and was just glad that she could help this patriotic young couple get back together again.
