The American Red Cross of Massachusetts took part in a warm welcome at Air Station Cape Cod on April 29.
Volunteers participated in the homecoming of Port Security Unit 301 of the United States Coast Guard, which just returned home after a 9-month deployment at Guantanamo Bay.
The Red Cross worked with the unit ombudsman and family members of the deployed to create the festive welcome, which featured activities for kids, arts and crafts, food and decorations.
“We were honored to be there among so many family members and loved ones,” explained Lynn Levine, Red Cross Service to Armed Forces Program Manager for the Eastern part of the state. “We are grateful for the work of our armed forces, and it was wonderful to see PS301 come home.”
