Yesterday I got to experience what is great about living in a small town. A friend's son has been serving in the Air Force and yesterday he returned to Ohio from Afghanistan. Millersport turned out with flags and banners,they gave him a police and fire truck escort, and all of the school kids came out of the school and lined the street to thank Garrett for his service. When he saw the crowd, they stopped the car and Garrett got out and greeted all the kids. It was a wonderful homecoming for a local hero, and, to me, this represented the best of small-town life - that here in the small town, we can all stop and honor someone who made a sacrifice for our freedom.
