There are celebrations as another serviceman comes home. US Marine Lance Corporal Daniel Johnson arrived home Saturday afternoon to a flood of family and tears.

He has been gone since January and was in the thick of action several times. We introduced you to him in March when his unit created a diversionary attack during the rescue of Private Jessica Lynch.

Johnson said he was proud to serve, despite a few shortcomings. "The eating MRE's for about 60 days or something like that, just all the traveling, not much sleep, stuff like that."

He'll be home for a little less than three weeks.
