Nate is back on U.S. soil

Got home late after a meeting Thursday night and had this email from the parents of Cpl. Nate Salatin of Augusta County:
Nate is back in the USA!!

Around 11:15 a.m. today we received a telephone call from Nate. He said,"I am in Bangor, Maine!" So his return from Iraq was sooner than planned. Nate said that he and the other Marines in his group had just arrived from Iraq, with a stop in Germany.
Thank God for his safe delivery back from his second deployment to Iraq. He won't be back to Augusta County for a couple of weeks but we'll be ready! The American flags are going up at the Salatin home when word is received that Nate is on his way home to Virginia.

Semper Fi.
