It was going to be the first Christmas the family was going to have without all the family members there. Chase had become a Marine, and they thought he wasn't going to be able to make it home for Christmas.
Christmas morning, the family came outside to find a large, wrapped present sitting on their front lawn, with a tag saying it was for Chase's 9 year old brother, Gavin, to open.
Chase is Gavin's hero, and he can't wait to be a Marine just like him. He goes wild at the sight of Chase, and the rest of the family follows suit.
It's really dusty in here all of a sudden.
