Six of Oklahoma's Own were reunited with their families on the Homefront Monday night.
"Say hi! It's Daddy!" one happy relative called out.
Dozens were waiting to welcome home these members of the 45th Infantry Brigade. There wasn't a dry eye as families embraced for the first time in months.
Even the guardsmen themselves had trouble holding back the tears.
Family and friends tried to squeeze in as many hugs and photos as possible before these soldiers head back to Afghanistan in two weeks.
