One local woman and her three children received a special present this Christmas, reports the Hudson Hub Times.



Lindsay Baran and children Adelaide, Damien and Vincent of Hudson welcomed home husband and father U.S. Navy Ft. Commander Ben Baran on Dec. 20. Ben has been stationed at Camp Eggers in Kabul, Afghanistan since last Thanksgiving.



This was the first Christmas that the Barans were able to celebrate together as a family in Hudson. Ben explained, “The most important thing in my mind, is this wasn’t just my deployment, it was a major event for my wife and family.”
