Saegertown alumnus, Dylan Johnston (‘10), brother of Saegertown High School junior Garrett Johnston (that’s me) and son of MDS aid Michele Johnston, returned to the states on Nov. 4 after spending seven months on active duty in Kuwait. He returned to Crawford County on Nov. 6 after spending the required time at Fort Indiantown Gap in Harrisburg, Pa.
Dylan is a part of the 201st Red Horse Unit, a division of the United States Air National Guard. The unit entered Fort Indiantown Gap after being escorted from Newark, New Jersey by a police bike and a motorcycle group called the Guardian Knights. “It was really touching to see the parade when he returned,” said Michele. “I had no idea they would have an escort like that. When I finally got to see him, I didn’t say anything. I just hugged him. So glad to have him home.” Dylan plans to return to Penn State Mont Alto in the spring to complete his final semester and receive his degree in forestry.
