Mother's Day is of course a holiday where mother's yearn to be with their children and there was one Grand Valley mother who was truly rejoicing on Sunday.
Lance Corporal Brian Ramirez returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq about a month ago and upon arriving at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, Ramirez came by car to Grand Junction to be with his family.
The Fruita Monument graduate was stationed in Alticada during his second tour in Iraq and said this Mother's Day had special meaning.
Lance Corporal Ramirez is still active and has returned to the Grand Valley to assist in recruiting for the Marine Corps.
