Hundreds of friends, family, veterans and public safety personnel turned out at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport to welcome home Sgt. Christopher Russell, reported the Martha’s Vineyard Times. Chris, who lives in West Tisbury, had been in Iraq for 16 months. More than a dozen fire trucks, police cars and ambulances lined up along the taxiway and as Russell’s Cape Air flight flew over the airport, their lights began to flash, strobe and whirl; and as the plane taxied in, their massed sirens howled a deafening salute. Two fire trucks shot streams of water into the air forming a giant arch through which the aircraft rolled up to the crowd. Russell, who learned Arabic at the Defense Language Institute in California, worked in Iraq questioning local people from all walks of life.
