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.
