Welcome Home, Nick

My friend Corporal Nick Sowers arrived in Greensboro this morning. As he emerged from the security area, his return was announced over the PA system. A crowd of about 75 friends greeted him with applause, then sang the Marine's Hymn.

Nick survived two seven-month tours and over 200 missions in Iraq. I look forward to buying him a beer and hearing about his time over there.
