Colton Sasser: A Hometown Hero

By: Angelica Lombardi

Today was truly a homecoming for a hometown hero. Spc. Colton Sasser, an Afghanistan solider finally returned home. In honor of his arrival, hundreds from the Casper community celebrated his homecoming....all the way from the airport to his family home.
Colton fought in Afghanistan for a year a half, suffering a bomb blast and an amputated leg, but through it all...he stands strong and returns home.
The Casper community surely reminded Colton just how fortunate they are for his service, and the turnout was more than anyone expected.
