La Pine residents are planning a big welcome home for a returning La Pine marine severely wounded in Afghanistan. The welcome home for Marine Corporal Kyle Thompson is planned for Saturday at 3 p.m. at the American Legion. Larry Matthews is helping coordinate the event: “Since all the surgeries and the rehabilitation, we heard he's coming home. So the American Legion is planning a welcome home to let him know we care about him and others fighting for us. So the community is behind him as we're going to give him a pot luck ceremony on Post 45 in La Pine.” Kyle Thompson, 24, was seriously injured back in October, when a roadside bomb exploded hitting him in the face.
