Soldiers returning

HOLLISTON

Christine Hamm of Holliston hasn't heard much from her son James, a staff sergeant in the Army Reserve's 220th Transportation Company, since he was deployed to Iraq a little over a year ago.

The long wait may soon be over. His unit is headed home. It's scheduled to fly to the area tomorrow and a welcome ceremony is tentatively slated to be held in Boxboro.

Mrs. Hamm is a member of a "family readiness" group and experts have told the group that their returning loved ones may have a difficult time adjusting to Stateside life.

Mrs. Hamm said "I'm not overly concerned, but it's good to know what to look for."
