Special welcome home planned for Thursday in Rochester

A hometown hero is coming home to a proper welcome this week. Donald J. Johns is returning from time with the 13th Engineers.


His father, Donald Johns.



Johns owns his own business, John’s Family Handyman.  He’s also a volunteer fireman for Rochester.  His father says that role has impacted his life.



Serving in the military is a part of the Johns family history.



A welcome home event with the Rochester Fire Department picking him up, and Johns driving the fire truck in with sirens and lights and the VFW Post 1343 hosting a welcome home event has been delayed just a bit.  Originally planned for Wednesday, Johns’ flight times have changed.  Now, they’re shooting for Thursday, sometime between 4:00 – 6:00 pm.
