Kristi and Chief Warrant Officer 3 Scott Hinson, of the 201st Military Intelligence Battalion, 470th MI Brigade, were spotlighted on NBC's "The Today Show," March 26. The couple was featured on the popular morning show to share the unique way Scott Hinson observed their 20th wedding anniversary as he returned to San Antonio from Afghanistan for a brief rest and relaxation trip.
With his daughters in on the surprise, the United Services Organizations of Georgia helped Hinson acquire roses during his layover at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta. On his connecting flight to San Antonio, Hinson asked 19 fellow airline passengers to hand a red rose to Kristi, who was standing next to the "Welcome Home" sign in the luggage area. While one daughter held the sign their second daughter recorded the rose handoff and their parents' ultimate embrace with the 20th rose for YouTube.
