Operation Thank You welcomes home soldier

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash.-- Army Private First Class Shaun Haradon got a great welcome home this morning at the Pasco airport.

The 20-year-old Pasco man was greeted by loved ones, local veterans and military families. Operation Thank You, a group that honors those in the military for their service, organized the event. Around fifty people came out to show thanks for his time overseas.

"To be able to have everyone come and thank me for everything I've done, it just seems like everything I have done is worth it," says Haradon.

Veterans of all ages made it out. There were even World War II vets in their late eighties there to show their support.
