Today’s welcome for Sgt. Dawn Wheeler-Hogwood was one for
the books! With the help of Doug and Charity, all went well. Patriot Guard helped put the cherry on the top of this welcome as they stood in a flag line to welcome home our Hero. The A Hero’s Welcome cerificate was presented by Charity’s son, Christopher , who is a member of the Jr. ROTC Navy Sea Cadets (Christopher’s mom, Charity is the C.O. of this H. S. group !) I can’t thank everyone enough for the coordination in this welcome. By the looks on Dawn’s face, she was quite happy with it all! Welcome Home Dawn!!!
