A joyful reunion with his parents and brother at Fort Bragg welcomed Jonathan Marchi who has been in Iraq the past 15 months. His unit, 2-325 AIR, 82nd ABN DIV, was part of the first brigade sent to Iraq as part of the “surge.” They spent most of their time on the outskirts of Sadr City. Not all made it back.
Proud brother Ben Marchi (top photo), VA director of Americans For Prosperity (AFP), kept us updated throughout Jonathan's deployment. He sent the photos and wrote that he wanted to "thank everyone for the packages, prayers, and support of Jonathan, his men, and our President (who had the courage to see this through to the success if has become)."
Welcome home, Jonathan. Thank you for your service.
