Welcoming Home US Army SGT Kenneth Marinellie of Berwyn on Saturday afternoon on March 5th

We received the following message from friends in Berwyn:

SGT Marinellie will be coming home on leave to his parents house for the first time since we was wounded in battle in Afghanistan back in December of 2009.

Our plan is to line the streets with as many people as possible from 22nd and Grove to his front door which is on the 2400 block of Grove. We are expecting him to arrive around 3:15pm on Saturday, March 5th.

Please bring US Flags and wave them proudly as we welcome home a hero from Berwyn.

Any questions feel free to contact Frank Amaro at 708.359.3710
