TULSA, Oklahoma -- Proudly creating an "alley of flags" at the airport, friends and family welcomed home Sergeant Shawn Jackson Thursday night with hugs and handshakes.

Jackson previously served in Iraq, but the mortarman says his current deployment to Afghanistan with the 45th has been a lot more intense.

"A lot more intense. Last deployment we didn't lose anyone. This deployment we've lost way too many already," said Sergeant Jackson

Jackson's home for two-weeks' leave before returning to the front.
