Marine Corporal Dave Metcalf was surprised to be greeted by his family on his return to the United States from Iraq. He returned Jun 3 to Camp Lejeune, NC.
Cpl Metcalf was to be the keynote speaker at this year's Memorial Day ceremonies in Nashville but due to a change in his deployment, he went to Iraq and his deployment was extended. His father delivered his speech he had written in Dave's place. Dave is planning on returning to the area this August for his 10 yr reunion.
