The family of one Oklahoma soldier is looking forward to the day he comes home. Charlie and Catie Holzer of Sperry expect their son Bill Pace to come home within a week or two.

Bill joined the Army National Guard just out of high school. He’s been in Fallujah for about a year.

Bill’s mother Catie Holzer: "It has been the most agonizing year. You know, because, everyday you just are worried as a parent. You just do a lot of praying and you have to just get in touch with God the whole time."

Bill's homecoming has been delayed several times, but his family expects it to happen soon. They say he'll likely go to college when he returns home.
