Nearly 100 well-wishers turned out earlier this week to welcome home Army Specialist Kyle Eith to Pleasanton.

The celebration, arranged by Pleasanton Military Families and veterans organizations, took place in front of the home of his parents, Peggy and Jeff Eith, on Yosemite Court.

Eith, a 2006 graduate of Amador Valley High School, spent the past year at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan.

Among those at Sunday's event were Congressman Eric Swalwell, Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne, City Councilman Jerry Pentin and Planning Commissioner and City Council candidate Kathy Narum.

Doug Miller and Pat Frizzell led a large contingent of Pleasanton Military Family members with the American Legion and VFW color guard also part of the welcoming team.
