Marine gets hero welcome in Elmhurst

A soldier from Elmhurst got a surprise welcome home celebration Wednesday.

About a dozen cars and motorcycles carrying members of the Warriors Watch Riders rolled up in front of Fitz’s Pub in Elmhurst bringing a hero’s welcome to a very stunned Alex Spencer.

The 20-year old Marine just arrived back in Illinois last week from his second deployment, this one in Afghanistan where he was working to stop drug runners.

Eight more months and Alex’s service is over, but the Elmhurst native still plans on giving back by becoming a music teacher.
