  Garfieldodieheliumballoon.jpg Please come out to welcome home CWO Manish Karnik from deployment in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  Manish has quite an impressive military career.  All will be shared at the homecoming.  The short version is that he has served in the Army National Guard since September of 1993.  He started off as a PVT and worked his way up to CWO.  He has received several awards including US Army Achievement Medal, Army National Guard State Commendation Medal, Letters of Appreciation from several OIC/NCOICs for outstanding support, Sustained Superior Performance, and cash awards for DOD Civilian Position.  He is always anxious to support and defend our nation's interests both domestic and abroad.  He always volunteered for flood duties and snow storm duties.  He also volunteered to guard the George Washington Bridge after 9/11 occurred.

He requested and volunteered for deployment and his first choice was Afghanistan, but instead he was sent elsewhere in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  Not all of the information will be revealed at this time.

Manish is married to Sona and they have 2 sons, Tanuj 7 years old, and Anuj  2 years old.  Sona asked if we could welcome home her husband and when I told her  how we do it she became so excited.  

The Yellow Ribbon Club, Warrior Watch Riders and Friends, Evesham Fire-Rescue, Evesham Police Dept, and the township of Evesham will be on hand to give this hero a nice loud welcome home that he will never forget.  Please come join us.
