It is a great day in New Jersey as Newark welcomes Army Lt. Col Erica Clark-Muhammad home from her third deployment to the Middle East.
Lt. Col. Clark-Muhammad out of Fort Dix spent the last two and a half years in Kuwait and Jordan. Prior to that deployment she served in Saudi Arabia and also in Iraq during the second Gulf War.
Clark-Muhammad is the wife of Newark Deputy Mayor Rahaman Muhammad and the mother of four.
The couple this year celebrated their fifteenth anniversary.
“Welcome home, hero – I’m just happy my wife is home,” said the deputy mayor.
