Our sympathy to ...

Nicole Burkel and her family of School Street on the death of Nicole's father, Remy Burkel, 76, of Riverside, California on March 11.

Home at last

2nd Lt. Daniel Newman returning from Iraq, is greeted by his parents Austin and Florence Newman.
It was a grateful and joyous crowd that welcomed home members of Charlie Company 3rd of the 172nd Mountain Infantry Regiment out of Manchester, New Hampshire National Guard, after having served over a year in Iraq. On a cold January day in 2004, 180 soldiers left their families and friends for the heat and wind of the Iraqi desert. It was another cold and windy day in February of 2005 when these same 180 soldiers returned to the exuberant cheers and tears of their loved ones.

Among those citizen soldiers returning was 33-year-old 2nd Lt. Daniel Newman, a native of Carlisle. There to greet him were his wife Heather and sons Shane, Kyle, and Jacob of Merrimack, New Hampshire. Dan's sisters Suzi, Kathy, Wendy, and Bonnie were present, as well as his brother-in-laws. Also present were his ever-thankful and proud parents, Austin and Florence Newman of Autumn Lane.

Our grateful family thanks all of our Carlisle friends for their concern, support, and prayers during this trying time. Thank you all.
