Brentwood Prepares to Welcome Home Wounded Soldier

Posted: Updated:

BRENTWOOD, Tenn.-  If you drive through Brentwood, you may have noticed the yellow ribbons going up along Concord Road.

Friends and supporters, including students at Brentwood Academy have been busy this weekend putting them up in honor of Andrew Wilson.

The 24-year-old Specialist 4 in the Army was seriously injured in the war in Afghanistan. A roadside bomb exploded when he was on patrol.

Wilson lost both legs, and now after close to a dozen surgeries and rehab, Specialist Andrew Wilson is coming home for the holidays on Tuesday.

Organizers hope that as many Brentwood residents as possible and other Middle Tennesseans will be standing along Franklin and Concord Roads around 11:30 Tuesday morning to welcome Andrew home.
