Kalitta Charters just brought this young marine back to his home in Riverside, CAL to his family. He was greeted by Marine Corp color guard, Riverside County Sheriffs Office, Fire Dept, reporters and the press. The corporal is one of the 13 who lost their lives in Afghanistan a few weeks ago. A fitting ceremony for one of our heroes.

It is an awesome service but I’m pretty sure they don’t do it for free. When the government first started requiring military or private transport in the early 2000’s that contract was $11M. Kalita keeps a few jets at Dover just for this service.

There were 3 different parades and terrific show of support yesterday. The freeways were just covered with people and flags showing respect for our 3 hometown heroes. Kudos to Kallita Charters for bringing these 3 boys home.
