JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Military families look for opportunities to share home with loved ones and a Mandarin family says they found one in the First Coast News segment called "This Is Home."
The weekly segment spiced with music gives a flavor of the people and events that happened locally.
"We sent him the videos of that. An immediate response came back. He shared them with many guys he knew from Jacksonville," said Frank Clodfelter, whose 22 year-old son Lance Corporal Sam Clodfelter is a Marine stationed in California.
"He misses home," said Denise Clodfelter of her son. "If my son cannot be home, I feel like it is important for him to see little bits and pieces of home."
The Clodfelters say helping their son stay connected to the First Coast makes the world a little smaller.
