Valley soldiers reuinted with families at Sky Harbor Airport

PHOENIX - It was another special homecoming Friday for military families here in the Valley.

Four soldiers came back from Afghanistan just in time for Christmas.

On a day like this, emotions are hard to contain.

One father can't take his eyes off the door. "I hope the flights on time."

You never stop being a parent. "I'm worried. Where is she, you know?" said Frank Tasnadi who has a daughter in Afghanistan  

The wait is agonizing and then right behind him, she appears.

"Come here sweetie, love you!"

For these families, the hugs last a little bit longer.

There was a huge turnout for the four soldiers who returned Friday morning.

In part thanks to the USO which works to make sure every soldier is greeted warmly.
