UNION BEACH - One family that nearly lost everything during Superstorm Sandy, including their lives, returned to the site of their home on Union Beach for a special reason.

Brock Vazquez, son of Pamela and Bob - who were nearly swept away after staying in their home during the storm - held an army re-enlistment ceremony in front of family, friends and what used to be the house he grew up in.

"The last time I re-enlisted, I just basically signed the paperwork. I didn't do anything special for it," said Vazquez. "But this time I felt like I wanted to do it for my family."

Brock chose his brother, Marine Corp Reservist Chris Colgan, to administer the oath.
