Local Soldier Escorts WETM’s Samantha LaRocca to Holiday Party

Local News

Last week Jack Lingenfelter, an E4 Specialist in the United States Army, surprised his little sister at the Arnot Mall by coming home early for Christmas and to celebrate her birthday.

It was a heartwarming story that we covered, and it just so happens that the same morning we ran the story, our own Zach Wheeler was making his coffee before the show and saw that Samantha LaRocca had signed up for our company’s Christmas Party and that she put a sad face next to the plus one.

So after this story aired last week, Zach joked and said maybe Jack could escort our Samantha to the holiday party.

Jack’s family saw the segment and reached out to Samantha and it looks like the pair had a great time!
