Of course Wood Tv 8 was late showing up they showed up at the Armory about 10 minutes before the soldiers roled in and it shows in their report posted at the 11 pm newscast. Channel 17 and Channel 3 were present for a couple of hours prior to the Soldiers arriving. Channel 8 missed the Love and support of all the family and friends standing in the rain, the children who haven't seen their mothers and fathers, Moms and dads who haven't held their soldiers in 12 months. Channel 8 missed the Freedom Riders, The Corvette Club escorting our sons and why they wanted to escort our sons and daughters home. Channel 8 you dropped the ball again, you missed a great story.

If they led the way then where was the real story? They missed out on a chance to tell the Human Interest story, The soldiers coming home had absolutely nothing to do with the unemployment as the story was reported. Like always they were short on content and could have run their unemployment story in the morning.
