We were escorted by Evesham township police. We went to the home of TSGT Encinas and his wife and their children were escorted to Evans School in Marlton. The entire school all of the children, teachers and many parents along with Operation Yellow Ribbon Members were present. The Evesham Fire Department had an American Flag a few stories tall out to welcome The Encinas family. Principle DiBlasi is a very patriotic man and the children and staff were dressed in Red, White and Blue. A flag line was set up to greet the escort. Our Hero spoke to say thank you and had a very tearful moment remembering those he served with that did not come home. Edward “Tug” DeVine was the RC and coined our hero. Mayor of Marlton Randy Brown, Brenda from A Hero’s Welcome and Maria Rodriguez-Gregg, all thanked our hero. The school had a lunch for any Veterans to attend after the Welcome Home.
