A Marine Comes Home From Afghanistan

Guest of Honor

This page and the other pages in this series are the successors to the series of web-page about the Camden Fire Department. On this and other pages in the series you will find pictures and information regarding different events and aspects of the fire service in Camden, New Jersey.

All things considered, I think I would rather take more photos of happy events like this than of fire and destruction. I did not get the name of the young Marine who came home, he did say that he and his comrades had been fired upon quite frequently. Fireman Ramon Aviles of Ladder 3 is the Marine’s uncle, and he coordinated with the Freedom Riders and Camden County’s veteran’s affairs bureau in planning this event.
