AAR Welcome Home Cpl Christopher Levi


Thousands turned out today to welcome home Cpl Christopher Levi who returned home after an extended stay at Walter Reed Army Hospital while he was fitted and trained to use his new prosthetic legs.  The Arrivals Terminal was a sea of American flags.  So many came out that  all the Patriot Guard Rider Region 9 flags were used as well as many riders’ personal flags.

The escort ride proceeded through a forest of flag arches erected by many volunteer fire departments and then through crowds of well wishers lining the road to his home.

Pictures are here and here.
