Francisco Castillo is excited to be home after serving in Iraq and not spending the Holiday season with his family for over two years.
Now he can't wait to enjoy the time spending with his family during Christmas since being gone for two years and the feeling of returning home is a feeling all its own. Castillo is part of the 812th Quartermaster Company, which returned back in August, and a welcome home ceremony will be happening on December 4th at Marine Military Academy in Harlingen.
Even though Castillo appreciates the thanks he says there are others more important to thank and think of over the Holiday, like past veterans, but he is very thankful to be back. If you like to thank the soldiers for their service the event will be held at 9 PM at the Marine Military Academy in Harlingen Saturday December 4th.
