Soldier Returns Home From Iraq

An Oklahoma soldier is home from Iraq. The family of 22-year-old James Sparks gave him a big welcome home at the Tulsa International Airport on Friday.

The Army Private from Cleveland works as a truck driver carrying supplies to U.S. bases in Iraq. He says it feels good to be home with his family.

"Hang out with my family, and my papa and my nana, and my friends and my momma," he said.

Sparks is home for two weeks. His family says he has an Iraqi cell phone and a laptop to keep in touch while he's gone. But they say nothing can replace all the time he's missed.
