ADA, OHIO -
Ohio Northern University honoring veterans at Saturday's home game, with all branches of the armed forces being represented. Saturday's guest of honor, Major Seamus Rahill.
Returning after service in Afghanistan on Thursday, Major Seamus Rahill joining other veterans on the field at Ohio Northern's Dial Roberson Stadium, during Veterans Appreciation Day. For Major Rahill, who has served for 24 years, the joy of returning home never gets old; it's a moment that allows him to make up for lost time with his family.
Seeing his dad for the first time since January of 2012, for Sophomore ONU student Kevin Rahill, seeing his father in person is unlike anything he could have imagined.
With an F-16 jet flyover tying everything together, Major Rahill was overwhelmed with pride, pride for his country and pride for his son.
The Rahill family plans to spend some quality family time together, while Major Rahill hopes to spend a few weeks catching up on what he missed and relaxing before heading back to work in three short weeks.
