Troops Return Home in Pasco

PASCO, Wash.- The area welcomed home another group of Iraq War veterans Friday.

About five Vets flew into the Pasco Airport for the holidays, among them, Matthew Vasquez.

The Marine arrived to find about 50 friends and family waiting, along with a group of military moms.

Vasquez served time in Iraq, it's his first time home in seven months.

"It was insane, there's so many people here, I thank everybody for coming, it's truly amazing," he said.

The group of people calling themselves Operation Thank You welcomed Vasquez and other Vets home.

They often camp out at the Airport to greet troops when they get home.
