Tie One One

MANNING — Businesses and residents in Manning and throughout the Midlands are being asked to tie a yellow ribbon near their doors to welcome home the National Guardsmen from Charlie Battery.

The unit is expected to return at the end of September.

"Beginning on September 1st, we'd like to see yellow ribbons on every door to show support for the return of the Charlie Battery 178th guardsmen," said Michelle Holland, Family Readiness Group coordinator for Charlie Battery. "We've planned a parade and reception for the guardsmen and their families on Oct. 29, but we'd like for them to see the support and thousands of yellow ribbons as they ride through town."
