Sonora, CA — A local Sonora resident has returned from duty in the Middle East.
Marine Sergeant Lance White returned home from his third tour of duty January 12th. White served his first tour in Afghanistan followed by two in Iraq.
White says he feels that the troops mission the region is a positive one. He says there are numerous school and medical facilities being built and brought on line due to efforts of American forces.
White adds that support from home makes a huge difference in maintaining troop morale. He says letters and correspondence make a huge difference in lifting the spirits of the troops, many of which are away from home for the first time.
White says anyone interested in communicating with members of the military should contact their local office of the Veterans Administration.
White plans to spend the next three years working as the local area Marine recruiter.
