With great pride (and relief!) the clan welcomes Cal Gatch III back from Afganistan where he was serving in the Marine Corps. We are thrilled to have both Manning Kalish and Cal Boy back home and admire the courage that they have demonstrated on our behalf.

Here is what Cal Jr and Barbara reported:

Calvin III returned to Moline, Illinois where his Marine base is located on Saturday, April 14. He is healthy, happy and
so glad to be home with his family. It was a joyous day. He continues to be on active duty until the middle of June. We
are all grateful that Manning and Calvin served their county so well and have returned safely. Thank you for your love and

Here are a few photos of that “joyous day” that the Gatches provided for the clan.
