On Saturday, June 22, 2013, the Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company participated in a very special event. 
United States Marine Corps LCpl James Piatt was welcomed home on leave from Camp Lejeune, NC by A Hero's Welcome- Delaware Chapter I. LCpl Piatt was surprised with an escort to a party at his aunt's home in the Cooper's Run subdivision by a crew from Rescue 8, while Ladder 9's crew stood by for a Flag Detail at the entrance to the neighborhood. Additionally, this was also a send off for Anthony Schilling, who will be leaving soon for the United States Navy boot camp.
The Aetna Hose, Hook & Ladder Company was honored and proud to participate in this welcome home party. LCpl Piatt will be returning to Lejeune in two weeks to deploy to Afghanistan, and we wish both young men all the best, safe travels, and thank them for their service to our Nation.
