About a dozen Oklahoma soldiers are home from Iraq for a bit of R and R. Troops from the 120th Engineering Battalion of the Oklahoma National Guard were greeted with big hugs from families and friends Wednesday at the Tulsa International Airport.

This homecoming for Mark Southall was extra-special. He got to hold his one week-old baby girl, Kaelyn for the first time. New mom, Amy tells us Mark was supposed to be home for Kaelyn's arrival, but she came early.

The soldiers will be home for two weeks.
