It happened in South Carolina on Saturday. The young family of a soldier was on the sidelines for a tribute to the off-in-the-service soldier father/husband — pretty much the sort of thing we see at sporting events around here these days.

The family is originally from South Carolina, but has moved around as the military transferred Sgt. 1st Class Scott Faile from one post to another. Of late, he’s been in Korea. They’ve been in Georgia.
Bob Collins has been with Minnesota Public Radio since 1992, emigrating to Minnesota from Massachusetts. He was senior editor of news in the ’90s, ran MPR’s political unit, created the MPR News regional website, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started the two most popular blogs in the history of MPR and every day laments that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
