La Pine veterans are expecting a big turnout for a welcome home ceremony planned for a returning La Pine graduate injured in Afghanistan. Marine Corporal Kyle Thompson, 24, has lost an eye and has undergone several facial surgeries. Larry Matthews is helping coordinate Saturday's celebration: “He's been in recovery received eye, teeth, things to his face. I haven't seen him, but a hear he's a miracle person. He’s recovering miraculously well. I understand he can even drive even though he lost an eye and his vision reduced by 90%  in the other one, but that's coming around since then.” The welcome home celebration will be Saturday at 3 p.m. at the American Legion in La Pine.
