WATCH: Jasper Airman Gets Birthday Surprise in South Korea

SOUTH KOREA -- A Jasper-native, stationed in South Korea, get’s a birthday wish worthy of a true American hero.  A birthday song and a huge applause was just the beginning for 20-year-old airman Austin Horsting.

Thanks to the United Service Organizations (or USO), our hometown boy was able to video chat with his family back here at home, but, possibly the best gift of all, an unprecedented visit from mom.

And there was even more for the 2016 Jasper High School Grad.  He met celebrities like T.V. funny-man Jon Stewart, retired NBA star Rip Hamilton and MMA fighter Max Holloway.
