Once the plane was in sight, you could hear the excitement of the crowd as they screamed and cheered as they know their loved ones were safely back home.  As the soldiers steped off the plane made way to drop their gear, they were greeted by a few of the woulded soldiers from their unit and their mascot.

Kauren Leller was excited to see her boyfriend SPC Tyler Lambert along with his parents, Guy and Michelle Lambert, his brother Nick Lambers and grand parents Larry and Lois Lambert.  Once SPC Lambert is able to take leave, he and Lauren plan to travel to Hawaii to visit her parents.
