Soldier returns to unexpected welcome when the entire city comes out to greet him

Army National Guard Staff Sergeant Jesse Hogan thought he would be greeted by wife, son, and parents when returned from Qatar to Zelienople, PA. To his surprise, along with his family at the airport there were 67 American Legion Riders to escort him home. As they rode into the people of Zelienople were lined along Main Street to extend a well-deserved hero’s welcome to SSgt. Hogan.

With four tours served in the Middle East, Staff Sergeant had never received a homecoming greeting showered with so much love from the members of his community.
