Tulsa family welcomes soldier home from Iraq

Updated:
A soldier’s return to her family in Tulsa. US Army specialist Tracy Jones: "Oh man! It feels so good to be home! Look at my people! Hi, my people! Group hug, group hug, group hug."

Tracy Jones saw her family for the first time since December 2002. It was a reunion her family didn't think would ever happen! Jones was supposed to get home Wednesday night, but kept getting bumped off of flights on the way back from the frontlines in Baghdad.

Jones says she's lost so much weight in the Iraqi heat, her family barely recognized her.

Proud mom Denise Phillips: "She's changed so much. She's so tall. I'm so proud to have my child home."

Jones heads back to duty on September 3rd.
