Story posted April 18, 2012

It was a show-stopping moment on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange Tuesday morning, when traders welcomed back one of their own, Marine Corps officer Pack Janes '09, back from a tour of duty in Afghanistan.

The floor erupted in applause as Janes, son of trustee William Janes '76, was presented with a medal from NYSE CEO Duncan Niederauer. The Bloomberg TV program In Business, for which Pack's sister, Maxine Janes '10, is a producer, came to a halt amid the excitement:
