Local soldier gets surprise welcome
SYCAMORE – A small conspiracy was necessary to trick a U.S. Army intelligence specialist on Aug. 24, but the payoff was worthwhile.
About 100 family members, friends and supporters gathered Saturday afternoon at Northern Illinois University’s Convocation Center for a surprise vehicular escort to a party welcoming Spc. Matt Dumdie home from Afghanistan.
Motorcycles, cars and emergency vehicles from DeKalb, Sycamore, Cortland and Waterman all were part of the parade that began at the Convocation Center and ended at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Sycamore, where a surprise party honored Dumdie’s service.
