A member of the Army National Guard who served in Afghanistan is finally back home with her family in Marshfield.
But Brienne Travers-Sullivan almost didn’t make it.
She was severely wounded when the gun truck she was driving was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade.
There followed three years of recovery and rehabilitation in various medical facilities.
On Saturday, Travers-Sullivan got a warm welcome home.
Her husband, Joe, drove her from Washington and they were met at the Massachusetts-RhodeIsland border and escorted to Marshfield by 150 state police, local police, and fire department officials.
Travers-Sullivan was awarded the Purple Heart for her service.
