CBP Helps Welcome Home Warrior

02/26/2013 - Porthill, Idaho – On Feb. 18, Lower Kootenay Band Chief Jason Louie welcomed his daughter, Misty Louie, home from the United States Air Force at the port of Porthill after serving 6 years, including a tour in Iraq.

Chief Louie planned the ceremony as a surprise for his daughter to honor her service. Upon Misty’s arrival at the port, the group gathered to walk north. Crossing the international border from the U.S. going north into Canada members of the Lower Kootenay Band sang a warriors song in honor of their warrior who has returned home. They arrived at the Canadian port of Rykerts, British Columbia where they stopped for inspection of IDs and presentation of a gift to Misty on behalf of Canada Border Services Agency and RCMP.

A few days before the ceremony, Chief Louie visited the port of Porthill in tribal regalia for a photo op with CBP officers stationed at the port. The Chief thanked Porthill Port Director Sue Wilson saying, “This picture will stand the test of time and be a symbol of our commitment for creating a future that is of respect and honor.”
