An Okmulgee Marine who was one of the first to cross the border into Iraq when the war began is back home with his family.

Richard Biddle was greeted by cheering and hugs at Tulsa International Airport. His family says they are extremely proud of Biddle and all he did overseas. Brandon Biddle, Richard’s brother, "they’re trained to go over there and kick butt and I knew that's what he was gonna do and I knew he was gonna come home to us.”

Now that he's home, Biddle is getting ready for another big moment. He's getting married on Saturday.
