Rams Cheerleader Gets Surprise From Marine Husband After Returning From Overseas

The Los Angeles Rams found a great way to make us even more excited about the NFL preseason.

In a big preparation game Rams took on the Indianapolis Colts, yet the game paled in comparison to the reunion of Candace Valentine and her husband, August.

This Los Angeles Rams cheerleader thought she was getting a special message from her Marine husband during a Saturday game – but had no idea he would be delivering it in person.

Candace Valentine was stunned when her husband, August, who is stationed in South Korea, appeared behind her at Edward Jones Dome.

A video of the moment they reunited was shared on Twitter by the Rams, who helped orchestrate the magical reunion.

In the video, she is seen gasping and throwing her arms around her husband, who was her high school sweetheart. Needless to say, the crowd loved it! You could hear everyone cheering for Candace in this extremely emotional and special moment for her.

To make things even more interesting, not only is Candace a cheerleader for the Rams, but she’s also in the military, too. A first lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps, she has stayed in Los Angeles to work as a law office associate and complete a doctorate in public policy.

The sweet reunion was captured as the Rams played the Indianapolis Colts in a preseason game. And has gone crazy over Twitter because it was such an amazing and wonderful moment for everyone to see.
