A senior at Oakcrest High School in Mays Landing got quite a surprise the other day when her two brothers, who were serving in the Army overseas, returned home.

Sgt. Justin Potenski and his brother Specialist John Potenski, both from Mays Landing, were in Qatar since last summer. Both returned to the States on May 18th, but only a handful of relatives knew. One of the people who did not know was their sister, Brielle, who attends Oakcrest High School.

John Potenski tells WCAU-TV they shouldn't have to go back overseas again for quite a while and, "I’m not trying to leave my family again. You don’t really know what you have until you don’t have it. Makes you appreciate life a lot more.”
