ST. MARYS – For St. Marys resident Alex Wendel, there’s no place like home.
After a 10-month tour in Afghanistan, Wendel returned to the comfortable confines of Elk County and familiar faces, including his wife, Brittany Wendel, and their daughter, Aria.
“It’s so different there but we got snow a couple times,” Wendel said. “It’s a little different when you’re sleeping in your tent versus inside your bedroom, you’re just freezing. The life is definitely different— you’re always just heads up and always paying attention, never getting complacent.”
