An injured Oklahoma soldier is back in the arms of her family this Christmas Eve. It's the first time they've seen Specialist Ashley Jones since she was wounded in an IED blast last weekend in Afghanistan.

The 20-year-old combat medic from Cleveland is now stateside. She arrived in San Antonio last night for medical treatment.

Her family flew down there Saturday to see her.

The combat medic broke her back and pelvis in the attack. Doctors were also forced to amputate her right foot, just above the ankle.
