Paul's Family Reunion on Operation Touch of Home

(CINCINNATI) -- It was a family reunion of sorts for FOX19 Chief Meteorologist Paul Horton Tuesday morning on the FOX19 Morning News.  

Paul, while broadcasting live at Rookwood Commons for Operation Touch of Home, was joined by his sister Lynn Fendall and his two brothers Mike Horton and Erich Schneider.  

Lynn lives in Portland, OR and Mike lives here in Cincinnati.  Erich is a Captain in the U.S. Army and is visiting Cincinnati while on leave from his second tour of duty in Iraq.   

"It's incredible to have him home, even if it's only for two weeks," said Horton.   "We tried to make this the most amazing two weeks of his life.  We went to the Reds game, took him to the Kentucky Derby; we had lots and lots of fun." Horton said. 

Erich returns to Iraq at the end of this week and expects to come home for good sometime in the fall. 

While Erich is in Cincinnati he's lending his support to Operation Touch of Home.   FOX19 and Q102 have joined forces with the Yellow Ribbon Support Center to collection items for the military servicemen and women serving overseas.  The donated items will boxed up by volunteers of the Yellow Ribbon Support Center and shipped to individual soldiers, marines, sailors and airmen serving in harms way. 

This is the second week of Operation Touch of Home.

During the first three days of the campaign in Clermont County over two thousand pounds of items and close to two thousand dollars were collected. 

Operation Touch of Home continues at Rookwood Commons until May 10th at 3pm.
