Four Oklahoma soldiers are back home after serving in Iraq.

Sergeant Ricky Clinton, Specialist Stacy Scott, Specialist Edmond Coker, and Sergeant Jason Whitlow were all greeted with lots of hugs from their families. All of them are with the 120th Engineering Battalion with the Oklahoma National Guard based in Okmulgee.

Sergeant Whitlow says they've been gone for about six months and are back now for about two weeks. "Be with my family, really nothing else matters, from that point on, just be with my family. It's a pretty short time, 15 days will go by quick, and I'm looking forward to spending every minute with them."

Sergeant Whitlow also says he missed his work family. He's an EMSA paramedic.
