Soldier Travels 5 Days To Get Home For Son’s Birth

It took him five days, but Staff Sgt. Colin Craig made it from Afghanistan to his New Jersey just a day before for his son’s birth.

The baby was going to be delivered this month by C-section whether Craig made it home or not.

Craig had leave. But it turned out to be a longer than expected journey halfway across the world to his wife Susan and his daughters in Fanwood.

He tells The Star-Ledger he had one flight canceled, another one delayed by six hours and a third late enough he barely made his connection.

The baby, also named Colin, is healthy though he’s due to have lung surgery in coming months.
