Cairo woman welcomes boyfriend home

July 6, 2003

Ft. Stewart - Well, many people were waiting to see their loved ones Saturday night, including some local folks. Pamela Welch traveled from Cairo to welcome home her boyfriend Lewis Ersland.

Lewis has been in Iraq with the 3rd Infantry Division since February. Pamela says since he's been gone, she's gained a new appreciation for the United States. "I think we should [appreciate them] all the time, not just because what's going on in the world," says Pamela. "You should be patriotic everyday, not just because of what's happened."
