The Family Readiness group in Freeport is gearing up to throw a welcome home parade and party. The 333rd Military Police unit has been gone since last summer in Iraq.
This May, the unit is expected to be back home. Saturday, family and community members got together to plan for the Welcome Home celebration.
The parade and party is expected to cost about $4,000. An account has been set up in Freeport at the State Bank of Freeport to collect donations.
