Dozens of Marines and sailors are back on the homefront. The group arrived at Tulsa International Airport on Saturday. It was a hero's welcome as family and friends greeted them with long awaited hugs and kisses.  Some Patriot Star Riders also showed up to lend their support.

"For us it's extremely important to let the veterans know that we have their back and we are here to honor them," said Rob Dobb, Patriot Star Riders.

"Watching them come home it unties the knot in your stomach and fills the void right back up," said Gregory Terry, Marine's Brother.

The Marines and sailors are from the Anti-Tank Company in Broken Arrow. They've spent the last six months conducting combat operations in Iraq.
