THE HOME COMING OF CPL CHRIS LEVI
He arrived at his Holbrook home Saturday via parade that swept him from Long Island MacArthur Airport. A smiling soldier who waved from a vintage Jeep and who was mobbed by thousands of neighbors, friends and total strangers. Army Cpl. Christopher Levi, who promised that he would learn to walk again after losing both legs in a bomb attack in Baghdad. He climbed from the Jeep with his prosthetic limbs thanking the crowd for their outpouring support.
"It's almost to the point of being totally overwhelming," said Levi, a member of the 10th Mountain Division, who arrived home for the first time since the bombing. "It's so great to finally be able to come home. I don't think I could be any happier without crying."
