Well more than 100 police and emergency response vehicles provided a hero's escort to Officer Jared MacDonald, as residents and friends lined Main Street cheering for him -- waving hand-made signs and American flags.
Town employee Jean Potter says she was amazed by the turnout, and that MacDonald deserves the support.
"He went by, and I did get to see him, and I was able to wave," she said. "And he looks great. He had a huge smile on his face, and he was waving and he looked really happy to be coming home to this."
