A couple of Green Country soldiers home on leave have a busy two weeks ahead of them. David Mitchell and James Hancock are a father and son who just returned from Iraq.

They are part of the 120th Engineering Company out of Pryor. They both made it home in time for two very important weddings. Sabrina Mitchell from Pryor is James' wife and David's mom. Sabrina Mitchell: "My oldest daughter Tiffany is getting married July 5th. We didn't think they were going to get home for the wedding to give her away but they are making it home. My son also decided while he was here he's going to get married, so I've got two weddings now."

The soldiers will be here for about two weeks, and then it is back to Iraq. They should get to come home for good in February.
