Kinfolks, neighbors, and friends, came down out of the mountains to welcome one of their own back home. It had been in the newspapers and on television as well as flyers posted around towns along the way. There were signs, posters balloon’s and ribbons all along the route. We all gathered at the City Park.
Flags and cold bottled water were passed out. A military and police escort brought Elwood Green from the Airport in Little Rock. Here is a video look as it passed through Norman Arkansas.
Even the birds in the nearby park seemed overjoyed at the Ouachita Mountain Boy’s return.
