Marine Gets a Warm Welcome Home

Family, friends, and veterans alike gave one marine a welcome home surprise.

Wyoming Patriot Guard Riders lined up with American flags to greet Private Michael Jonnassen as he got off his flight.

The marine's family asked for Guard Riders to help create a standing line for his return.

Guard riders spread word through Facebook to help with Private Jonnassen's return.

Private Jonnassen has been training at boot camp for the past 13 weeks, and fellow veterans say it's the least they can do.

"It's an honor to be able to do a mission for somebody coming home from boot camp or coming home from overseas. Everbody loves to see somebody come home like this."

Jonnassen is home for ten days before returning to boot camp for more training, and future deployment.
