Patriot Guard, Warriors Escort Ira Fain Home to Hainesville

"We want every soldier to have a great homecoming," said a Warriors Watch member, part of a large group escorting a local soldier home.

Ira Fain of Hainesville came home from Afghanistan a month early, led by a several motorcycles, a Grayslake Fire Truck, Grayslake Police officers and friends and family.

The welcome home celebration was made even more special by several veterans leading the way.

Members of the Warriors Watch, the Patriot Guard and the American Motorcycle Club escorted Fain to his house. Nearly 300 friends and neighbors were waiting to welcome Fain home.

"This is just great," said veteran Frank Foster of Schaumburg, a member of Warriors Watch, standing outside of Fain's home. Friends, neighbors and strangers gathered in the street to welcome Fain home after nearly a year abroad.

"To me, I find it rewarding because I came back from Vietnam and it wasn't like this," Foster said. "So we all stand behind the motto that it will never happen again like that."

The Warriors Watch mission statement says "...we will honor our nation's warriors here at home, and support their families while they fight for us abroad."

Foster said they escort veterans home from distant lands to ensure they get a big welcome home.

"Every one of these homecomings that we do is special," Foster said. "It is important to welcome every one of these guys home."

We’re not quite at that http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org stage yet. But we may be on the right path. For http://www.coachoutletod.com perhaps the greatest geek triumph of the 2012 presidential http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net elections was the unlikely figure of statistician Nate Silver, http://www.coachoutletpn.com whose FiveThirtyEight blog – which algorithmically assessed http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com hundreds of polls based on their historical accuracy – http://www.coachoutletos.org managed to successfully predict the result in 50 out http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com of 50 states.His analysis – like every political story – divides http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com opinion. To my mind, though, his work shines a light on a bigger story about our future relationship http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net with technology, and in particular on a vision of progress http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com where there’s an increasingly clear divide between those http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com endeavours that can safely be left to humans, and those where http://www.coachoutletdt.net machines and mathematics are preferable.It’s something that http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net is already happening.
