A Special Reunion in the Halls of Hubbell


It was a special reunion here at Hubbell Elementary School. After nearly 10 months in Kuwait, U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Joshua England made Hubbell his first stop upon returning to Des Moines. With students lining the halls and filling the air with cheers, he was there to see his wife Carrie, a 5th grade teacher at the school. Click the headline to see more of this special homecoming.
