Family And Friends Welcome Local Sailor Home

Posted: Updated:
MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. -

A community came together to welcome a local sailor home on Sunday.

He's only been in the service for a total 2 years, but his parents say it seemed like forever because they were not able to speak with their son on his last mission.

So, they set up their own covert operation.

And if all the people didn't give away the closely guarded secret, all the praise and proclamations certainly made it clear, Mount Laurel, New Jersey, knows how to welcome home a Navy E-3 Seaman.

21-year-old Nick Braciszewski's family hadn't spoken with him, not even skyped with him, since he was deployed 9-months ago to the Middle East.

Nick was on a mission that he couldn't talk about.

Two other Navy Seamen who served with Nick were also there as part of the surprise.

They too were stunned by the outpouring of appreciation in Mount Laurel.

The men were stationed aboard the USS Harry Truman aircraft carrier out of Norfolk,Virginia.
