Airman gives ultimate Mother's Day surprise at Houston Dynamo game

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- An airman based overseas returned home this weekend to give his mother the ultimate Mother's Day surprise.

When Diana Entz and her family were called out onto the pitch during halftime at Sunday's Houston Dynamo soccer game, they thought they were just being honored as Forever Orange Members of the Match.

The team then hit them with surprise number one.

On the jumbotron was their son, Air Force Staff Sergeant Andrew Entz, who wanted to wish her a Happy Mother's day from halfway around the world.

Then came surprise number two.

Entz wasn't in South Korea where he's based. He was at the game too.

"It was priceless it was a moment and I'll never forget the expression on her face," Entz told ABC News after surprising his mom.

"We weren't excepting him until December," his dad Chip said. "This has been a blessing for our family."

The last time Entz got to see his mom was eight months ago. While this trip is short, his mother says they plan to make the best of his time home.

"It's been hard but I know Andrew is in a good place," said Diana Entz. "I miss him tremendously but I know he's happy serving our country."
