Welcome Home 4th LAAD!

The United States Marine Corps's 4th Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion was adopted by listeners of the Kimmer Show during their time in Iraq.  When I heard they were coming home, I made a flurry of phone calls to secure permission to take pictures of their return.  Because of a snafu, I waited at the Dobbin's Air Force gate (instead of the  Naval Air Station gate) from 02:30 am until 3:30 a.m. and missed the actual arrival, but I finally got in and took some pictures.  The returning Marines were greeted by wives, girl friends, children, parents and friends and were given hugs by USO personnel and bags of goodies rounded up by the Cobb Convention and Visitor's Bureau.
