Troops will be home tonight
Area soldiers who are returning from Iraq will be home tonight, Monday, Oct. 15, roughly between 6:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. for a community welcome.
A police car, fire truck and motorcycles will escort the local soldiers home. They will enter town from the east on Highway 10, turn south and proceed along 1st Street SE to the Wadena VFW, then west on Colfax to Jefferson. They will go north on Jefferson back to Highway 10, where they will proceed to New York Mills.
The rough time estimate of 6:15 to 6:30 p.m. for arrival in Wadena is based on the group tentatively leaving from Randall, Minn. by 5:30 p.m.
