TULSA, OK -- A Tulsa soldier has made his way back home.

Pfc. Taylor Gordon returned to Tulsa on Saturday.

"To see his bald head coming through the door is overwhelming," his father Bill Gordon said. "I'm just so proud of him."

He and his parents have big plans while he's home. First on their list is a real meal.

They told us, Taylor has been craving some barbeque from Elmer's.

He has been in Iraq the past year and had a couple close calls. He will be home for about two weeks, then it's off to Fort Hood, Texas, and possibly Afghanistan.
