Welcome home, Marcus Kuiper!
Kuiper just finished an eight month deployment to Afghanistan, where he served as a combat videographer in the Marine Corps. This was Kuiper's second deployment to the middle east. He returned home to Barrington on Sept. 9.
Kuiper was surprised with an escort from O'Hare to Barrington by local and state police along with the Warriors' Watch Riders, who brought him to Wool Street Bar & Grill in Barrington. He also didn't realize that dozens of his friends and family would gather there to greet him for a homecoming party. It was an emotional and heartwarming scene.
We got the surprise homecoming on video along with interviews from Kuiper's friends and family. Check back to Barrington Patch tomorrow to see the emotional video.
