Westport firefighter Pete Nichio, who recently served a tour of duty in Afghanistan, told the Westport Rotary Club today of his experiences in helping to close military bases in support of the U.S. military withdrawal. “When I came home and saw my seven-year-old daughter at the airport I was reminded that what I did allowed others to come back to their children,” he said. Nichio also served in the Marines from 1992-1996 and saw duty in both Somalia and the Persian Gulf Theater. He said that the reception he has received from everyone upon his return has been “exceptional.” “Everyone has done a wonderful job of welcoming us back,” he said.
