Joe Brown Welcomed Home From Military

Sunday, May 3,2009, brought together many family, friends and community to welcome home Tech Sgt. Joe Brown of Burnt Cabins.

A 1998 graduate of Southern Huntingdon High School, Joe was able to share some of his experiences with his Alma mater.

The son of Steve and Wilma Brown of Burnt Cabins, grandson of Evelyn and the late Reed Brown, and Pauline Strite and the late Orville Strite, both of Fort Littleton, was home on leave after his third tour of duty in Iraq.

The event also marked 10 years service in the Air Force that has enabled Joe to visit eight countries and participate in some significant events in political history, such as the G-8 Summit, and the Republican National Convention.

The cool, rainy day did not hamper the enthusiasm of those gathered to celebrate Joe's safe return and thank him for his sacrifice to the security of our nation.
