Eyewitness News --
The family of PFC John Michael Silvey is anxiously awaiting his arrival today (Sept 15). PFC Silvey is returning home from Afghanistan to be with his pregnant wife as she gives birth. He will only be in town for a short time before returning to Afghanistan to finish his tour. The family has invited the Patriot Guard Riders to help them welcome home their American Hero.
The PGR will ride to the Tallahassee Airport and set out a flag line at 5:00. Silvas is due to arrive at 5:30, but the PGR plan to be early in case the plane arrives ahead of schedule.
Following Silvey’s arrival, the PGR will escort Silvey and family to their home in the Tallahassee area.
Anyone wishing to come out and support the welcome home efforts for PFC Silvey should be at the Tallahassee Airport between 5:15PM to 5:30PM.
