TULSA, OK -- An Oklahoma soldier is home on leave and hearing wedding bells.  Army Private Matt Brown returned home on Thursday morning to screaming family and friends and his bride-to-be.   

There were lots of hugs, especially for 20-month-old Isabella.  Brown and his little girl have a lot of catching up to do.

"It's one of those things you just dream about coming off the plane and getting to see your family, especially after months and months away," said Private Matt Brown.

Brown's been away since September and in Iraq since December.

The visit is extra special for Brown.  He's getting married on Saturday and then hopes to squeeze in some R&R before heading back to Iraq in two weeks.
