Serviceman gets warm welcome
Gabe Boliou, of Saltsburg, enjoyed a surprise welcome home party last month thrown by his family and friends at Dingbats Restaurant in the Indiana Mall.
Boliou was reunited with family members — including niece Emily Summers, 2, and Boliou’s sister, Nikki Summers, of Homer City — after returning from a tour in Iraq as a member of the Army Reserves.
Nikki’s husband, James Summers, is also in the Army Reserves, recuperating from an injury at a VA hospital in Texas. (Teri Enciso/Gazette photo)
