email@example.com Kevin Michael Lowe, a 21-year-old Marine who was involved in the fighting in Iraq from the beginning through the capture of Baghdad, came home to a hero's welcome Friday afternoon. Red, white and blue balloons floated from mailboxes on Sherri's Way, Lowe's street in Whispering Hills. Some of his neighbors put signs in his honor on their front lawns. His parents, Kevin W. and Gloria Lowe, drove to Camp Lejeune, N.C., Thursday to pick up their son. His unit had just flown in. When their green van entered the cul-de-sac in Smithsburg, the first thing Lowe saw was about a dozen family members and friends on his family's front porch at 104 Sherri's Way. His grandfather, John Forbes, 72, a Marine who served during the Korean War, was among them.
