11/12/2010 - HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. -- The next Heroes Homecoming will take place on Dec. 10 beginning at 2:30 p.m. in the Aero Club Hangar. The Hanscom community is invited to honor personnel who have returned home from deployments in the past six months.

Local radio personality and author Michael Graham from 96.9 WTKK will once again serve as the Master of Ceremonies for the event. Invited guests include Medal of Honor recipients retired Navy Capt. Tom Hudner and retired Navy Capt. Tom Kelley. Captain Kelley now serves as secretary of Massachusetts Department of Veterans' Services. In addition, the New England Patriot cheerleaders will be there to meet, greet and sign autographs.

Before and after the ceremony, attendees will be treated to the rhythm and blues sound of X-Band, a group of musicians composed of Raytheon employees. Free food and assorted beverages will be available.

Invitations have been sent out to each of the deployed heroes that will be honored at the ceremony. Joint service personnel who live and work on Hanscom and have been deployed over the past year are welcome and encouraged to be honored during the ceremony, as well.

Any Hanscom personnel who have been deployed over the past six months and have not received an invitation and would like to participate are asked to call 781-377-6851 or e-mail james.corcoran@hanscom.af.mil.

For additional information about the event or to sign up as a volunteer, contact Sarah Olaciregui in the 66th Air Base Group Public Affairs office at 781-377-4467.
