TULSA, OK -- A Marine is spending time with family at home after spending six months in Iraq.

Gunnery Sgt. Daniel Walker arrived at Tulsa International Airport on Wednesday to an excited family.

With flags waving and balloons flying, a couple of little girls were ready to welcome Daddy home.

Walker's wife, Brandi, is from Tulsa and came back to be with her parents while her husband was gone.

When Walker left, his son, Issiah, was only a month old. Now he's looking forward to catching up.

"Just spend time with the family," he said. "I guess eat pizza, too. That's what I'm hearing. So, just spend time with the family and get to know my little boy here."

Walker will be deployed again soon, but he can't say exactly when or where.
