East Texas boy celebrates medical accomplishment with surprise from heroes

TATUM, TX (KLTV) -

An East Texas boy was surprised by his heroes as he celebrated a medical accomplishment after a tough struggle.

Greeted with a salute by current and former military members, a surprise party was held for 10-year-old Eric Austin of Tatum.

Eric was born with a spinal abnormality and after a surgery, he had to wear a 'halo' or spinal brace. He doesn't have to wear that device any more, and that was something to celebrate.

Eric was given a lot of presents by the military members, including his own set of dog tags, and service commemorative coins and pins.
