On this Memorial Day, as we remember all who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defending our country, our hearts and prayers go out to PFC Geoffrey Hanscom who is being deployed to Afghanistan.

Hanscom is a 2016 graduate of MDI High School. For operational security we can't offer more information, but Geoff know that we are thinking of you, and praying and hoping for a safe return as you serve our country.

Keep your head down, be safe, and we look forward to welcoming you back to the Island and the United States!
