Snow and cold could not keep family and friends from the heartwarming welcome home ceremony for U.S. Marine Corps SSgt. Christopher Limberg, organized by Operation Welcome You Home.
SSgt. Limberg, 29, returned home just a few days ago from his sixth tour of duty, and his second to Afghanistan.
His tours took him to Fallujah, Iraq; the Mediterranean on a float; Haiti following the 2010 earthquake to assist in relief, the Al Anbar province of Afghanistan (where he received the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with a Combat Distinguishing Device); Afghanistan's Camp Leatherneck and then finally to another operating base in Afghanistan.
“He doesn’t call him a hero, but heroes would not call themselves heroes. Heroes are humble. Anybody who sticks their live on the line for another human being is a hero,” said Limberg's dad, Mike Limberg. "Welcome home, son."
