Army SSgt. Shawn H. McNabbSSgt. Shawn H. McNabb
Fallen Soldier's Welcome Home

Nov. 4, 2009, Greenville, TX -- Army SSgt. Shawn H. McNabb, 24, of Terrell, TX. died Oct. 26, 2009 of wounds suffered when the MH-47 helicopter he was aboard crashed in Darreh-ye Bum, Afghanistan.

A grateful community welcomed their hometown hero home . . . His chartered plane landed at 11:55 delivering his flag draped casket to his family. As the plane landed it was greeted with area fire departments and a dramatic water bridge. Once the plane came to a stop the doors opened slowing. Soon after an Army escort formally delivered his fallen brother home.

An Army honor guard then transferred his casket to a waiting coach. Afterward the family then welcomed their loved one home. It was a heart wrenching moment to observe.

The procession then organized to escort him to his hometown of Terrell some 27 miles journey. Along the route hundreds of citizen came out to show their respects to the fallen warrior and his family.

Both parents spoke of their son of being a hero. Since, his death they have learned a lot about their son from others who knew him. As a combat medic "...he help save the lives of many soldiers," said his mother.
