Soldier's Family has Many Reasons to Celebrate

Sgt. Joshua Edington was welcomed back Saturday at the VFW on Sheppard Access Rd. The ceremony included a second wedding reception for him and his wife Lisa.

Edington was first married overseas in Germany, but was deployed to Afghanistan shortly after. Family and friends traveled from South Texas to celebrate Edington's return.

He will be stationed in Germany until next July and plans to reenlist.

Edington is a Burkburnett native. He arrived in Wichita Falls in early October with his wife and daughter, Sophia, and will fly back overseas by the end of next week.
