South Kingstown's hero comes home

September 17, 2011

Joe "Tiger" Patrick is greeted by Firefighter Nathan Street of the Forest Fire Station, station 3 Saturday at the Elks Lodge' celebration.

After walking over 600 miles from Washington D.C. to Ground Zero, New York City to honor the victims and first responders of September 11, 2001, South Kingstown's Joe "Tiger" Patrick has returned home. His remarkable journey has changed him in more ways than he realized when he set out on foot on Aug. 7.

To celebrate and honor Patrick's achievement, his family, friends, and community turned out at the Elks Lodge #1899 on Belmont Avenue Saturday to show their appreciation.
