Special Delivery From Pittsburgh To Fallujah
(Ontario, NY) 02/06/06 -- There's no doubt that Lance Corporal Casey Hegedorn
of Ontario, Wayne County is celebrating the Pittsburgh Steeler's Super Bowl victory.
Family members say that the 19-year-old Marine has been a big-time Steelers fan
for a long time. When Casey calls home from Iraq, he always wants to know
the Pittsburgh Steelers score.
A casual discussion between Casey's mom Tammy and a family friend led to a
call to the Steelers headquarters and this past week, Hegedorn received a
special package from Pittsburgh.
Tammy Hegedorn said, "He called me last Monday, very excited and said,
'You're not going to believe what I got in the mail. I got a package from the
Steelers.' It was an autographed football from Bill Cowher.
It had a personal message: Lance Corporal Hegedorn, best wishes, Bill Cowher."
Hegedorn is a 2004 graduate of Wayne Central.
He signed up with the Marines at age 17.
Is this AWESOME OR WHAT?!?!?!
