PFC Ryan returned home from the Army for the holiday break. He had been serving in Afghanistan. He suffered several injuries from attacks on American solders.
Ryan and his family were greeted with an escort and parade from the Stewartsville Volunteer Fire Co, where he’s a member, along with numerous other first responders as he returned home to his family.
