Last month I had a pretty rough week. We have been taking care of my Mother, who has severe Dementia, for about three years now. She is finally to the point where she needs more care than we can provide so we decided to put her in a home.
A wife and her two young sons were recognized for their sacrifice while her husband and their father was away in Afghanistan, but they had no idea what was about to happen.
During halftime of Sunday’s debacle game against the St. Louis Rams, McAfee one-upped the rest of the league’s Veterans Day recognitions by surprising the Ino family of Indiana with a brand-new Toyota car after their vehicle broke down earlier in the week.
Despite the fact the Colts played their worst game of the season in a 38-8 loss to the Rams on Sunday, punter Pat McAfee scored the biggest win of the day by buying a new car for a military family that carried a special surprise…
It might have been one of the toughest days that he has been at Lucas Oil Stadium in his four-year career with the Colts. But still nothing could dampen McAfee’s mood when he returned to provide two special surprises to the Ino family of Indianapolis.

The family of Sergeant First Class Jeremy Ino got a big surprise when they were brought to the middle of the field at halftime and presented a brand new vehicle purchased by McAfee.

Another football season is here, and we are so thankful for our relationship with the Indianapolis Colts, who’s players have consistently donated their personal tickets so that our Indiana troops could help root on the Colts!
This was a great project that came to life thanks to the generous people at Home Depot and our wish coordinator, Ann Mayer. We would like to thank Larry Diggs for nearly 26 years of service, and we are so glad that Willie can now enjoy the back yard.
