Longview, Texas (Fox51) — Whataburger of East Texas held a special "Welcome Home" party for 1st Lieutenant Marshall J. Jones, an Artillery Commander in the United States Marine Corps, at 4:00 p.m. on Tuesday at its Longview location, 3308 N. 4th Street.
Douglas Edwards, Director of Operations for Whataburger of East Texas said, "Whataburger is dedicated to our community and the men and women who serve in our military. This was a small way for us to show our appreciation.
When Lieutenant Jones, a Hallsville graduate, left for his deployment in Afghanistan in September of 2013, said as soon as he returned from his deployment, he wanted to get a Whataburger.
In addition to getting his long awaited hamburger, was also meeting his 7-month old daughter for the first time today.
