Please join your Gilbert neighbors to Welcome Home one of our brave soldiers, Army Sgt. 1st Class Steven Milton. The ceremony begins at 6 pm on Thursday, July 28. It is held at the Municipal Center, 50 E Civic Center Drive. (The Council meeting begins one hour later, at 7 pm.)
Sgt. Milton has returned from a tour of duty in Iraq, where he served as a military police officer. He trained Iraqi police officers.
Sgt Milton and his family will be escorted to the Municipal Center by a motorcycle motorcade from American Legion Post 39.
If you haven’t attended one of the Welcome Home ceremonies, please do, and bring your children. It is a moving, patriotic event. Returning soldiers who have served their country with honor deserve our respect, and their families deserve our appreciation.
If you know someone from the Gilbert community who deserves to be honored through "Operation Welcome Home," please contact Council Member Jenn Daniels at 480-205-9685 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
