Welcome back, Marines


Many families were able to breathe a sigh of relief yesterday as they welcomed home members of the 1st Batallion, 25th Infantry from Iraq.

The unit, deployed about a year ago, spent seven months in Fallujah. Eleven members of the unit died.

One of those returning was Lance Cpl. Brian Shepard, who was met by his aunt, Julia Wenck of Milford.

"I'm so happy he's home. So relieved," she told the Telegram and Gazette of Worcester.
