Returning soldier enjoys special welcome home

May 3, 2010

A Wauwatosa family welcomed home a loved one returning from a year's service in Iraq with an unusual party, and we've just posted a photo gallery from the event.

Sadie Dodd was welcomed back by Vicki Spiering, her future mother-in-law, and a host of family and friends with a compression party. The party featured holidays from the past year compressed down to one day as party-goers dressed in Halloween costumes, opened Christmas presents, ate a Thanksgiving meal and more.
