Mission Accomplished!

On Tuesday, December 2, 2008, we arrived at the Wilkes Barre/Scranton airport with the mission of welcoming home returning soldier David Dozak, from Afghanistan. The first person I met at the airport was Major Zarnowski, who we are getting to know very well! He informed us that at least fourteen of his men would be returning on the same flight! And many more on later flights, approximately forty total today, all from the 1o9th and 103rd.

Members of Friends of the Forgotten Northeast Wing, Sldiers angels, and WWR, formed lines to allow these returning heroes to pass directly to their waiting families. The few I spoke to after the family greetings informed me that they were, to their knowledge, home to stay! Welcome home.Heroes!
