PASCO, WA - It's been a long road home, but a Marine from Hermiston is finally back home Monday! 

NBC Right Now first told you about Corporal Casey Allison back in February. 

Casey lost his right leg underneath his knee and two fingers on his left hand when he stepped on an I.E.D. Casey's had 20 surgeries and he's even had to re-learn how to walk. 

But on Monday, he flew into Pasco with his wife and his six-month-old daughter.  When they landed, they were greeted by family and several patriot riders!

"It's great. I love, you know, being from a small town like this. You know everybody can get together and do stuff like this for somebody, it's amazing. It really is," Allison told NBC Right Now. 

Casey and his family headed to Boardman after their plane landed to stay with his grandparents. On Tuesday morning, the family plans to head a cabin in Hepner to relax and have some fun!

After a short vacation, Casey will head back to rehab in southern California for about another year.
