NORTH OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Injured Marine Lance Corporal Cody Bisson is recuperating at home in North Ogden.
The helicopter mechanic was injured October 24th during a mortar attack on Al Taqaddum, an air base south of Fallujah and west of Baghdad. That's where he was stationed with Marine Medium Helicopter Squadron 268.
He came home Monday to the cheers of 45 friends and neighbors. Local Boy Scouts had installed U-S flags on neighborhood lawns.
The Scouts plan to hold a flag ceremony in Bisson's honor next week.
