Sgt. Lake was welcomed home by firefighters, a motorcade of police, friends and family who will escort her to her home town - Livermore Falls.

In June, Lake was severely wounded during a suicide attack in  Afghanistan. Two were killed during the same attack and several others critically injured. Lake required multiple surgeries and rehabilitation help at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Maryland.

Welcome home!
