A hometown hero is making his return to Plainfield Saturday.

Steven Lesage is expected to arrive at the New London train station around 3:15 p.m.

Residents, including family and friends will greet Lesage with signs.

Lesage, who is a veteran, hiked over 2,000 miles through the Appalachian Trail to raise money for Carry the Fallen.

The journey spanned six months. So far, he has raised $7,000.
