Antioch’s hometown hero, Marine Cpl. John Peck, returns home this week and will attend a blood drive in his honor at the Antioch VFW on May 9.


Area residents are urged to welcome him home by lining up along the route to the blood drive, starting at the intersection of routes 83 and 173 at 10:45 a.m. that will take him through downtown Antioch to North Avenue and west on North Avenue to the VFW at 75 North Ave.


“He will be escorted by the police and fire departments along with the Patriot Guard,”
