A class of fifth graders at Lee Avenue Elementary School have been tracking the U.S. Navy sailor for months. To their surprise Petty Officer Dominick Albanese returned from his seven-month deployment to meet them. One student almost cried when they realized that Petty Officer Albanese had entered their classroom. The letters were great, but they were nothing compared to getting to meet their Sailor in person.
