Any welcome home gesture can take you by surprise, especially when the token of appreciation is a 2 ½ acre corn maze.
Staff Sgt. Charles Snover, 23rd Special Tactics Squadron at Hurlburt Field, Fla., came home to this whopping sign etched into a corn field in Allamuchy, N.J. It reads, “Welcome home Chuck” and then “Above all” with the American flag underneath. In place of the 50 stars was the Air Force emblem.
“I was blown away! I thought it was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me,” Snover said in an email to Air Force Times.
Snover’s brother-in-law Zach Freeborn created the corn maze by himself in August. It took him approximately one week to complete the 2 ½ acre corn maze.
Snover was deployed with an Army Special Forces team for 6 months as an AFSOC pararescueman. He said he will be separating from the Air Force soon.
He and his wife can enjoy the corn maze located at Tranquility Farms, which is Snover’s wife’s family farm.
