Steve DeClue welcomed his son back home to Millington the best way he knew how.
Retired from the U.S. Navy, the elder DeClue made special plans for the homecoming of William back from Afghanistan. Accompanied by the Patriot Guard Riders, Steve greeted the younger DeClue at Memphis International Airport with an official Hero’s Welcome.
“My Dad came and picked me up but he had a motorcycle escort waiting on me,” William recalled. “That was pretty cool. But to just see him, of course he was pretty emotional. I’m not that emotional but it was definitely a good feeling. And that kind of surprised me, the motorcycle escort from the airport to the house.”
