Army Sergeant Surprises Girlfriend With Homecoming Thanks to 76ers Mascot

December 5, 2017

This dancer just got the surprise of her life! Angela DeStasio couldn't believe it when her boyfriend of three years, Army sergeant Elliot Burgos, walked out with the Philadelphia 76ers' team mascot. She ran and leaped into his arms. It was the first time they'd seen each other in 11 months, after he was deployed to the Middle East. "It was unbelievable, I thought I was dreaming. I was shaking. My legs were trembling. I'm glad he caught me because I don't know if I could've stood up.”
