Local soldiers return home
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Some local soldiers are back home with their families just in time for the memorial day holiday.
Excited family members greeted the troops at the Fresno airport Friday. 20-year-old Jesus Gomez Junior from Parlier was met with hugs and kisses from his loved ones.
He's been serving for the past 8 months with the army in Afghanistan.
"I'm very proud of him, he's got a good head on his shoulder and he's got a lot coming to him. He's a good kid," Sally Gomez said.
"I miss my mom, I miss my family, I miss everyone, I'm just glad to be back," Jesus Gomez said.
Jesus will be on leave for the next year. After that, he says he expects to be deployed somewhere in the states.
