Ok folks, how about a late night mission to Welcome Home our Hero. This will be a Welcome Home at Philadelphia International Airport.
Family requested that we surprise our Hero right there, no escort needed and that’s what we are going to do…
Details on our Hero from his Proud Army Mom:
First of all, I just wanted to say what a wonderful thing you and the rest of the volunteers are doing. A BIG thank you to you all.
I am writing to get more information on what I need to do in order to request a “welcome home” for my son who is currently serving in Afghanistan. He won’t be home until the end of November but, as you can imagine, we are already preparing a HUGE party for him!
SPC Gunnar Paterson,serving as an MP in the US Army. His platoon is responsible for closing FOBs that are no longer being used by NATO forces and making sure that the ANA are properly trained, so he is all over Afghanistan.”
