Your donations help an Oklahoma Marine get home to be with his family.

Jason Cohea is a US Marine and he's just back from his second tour of duty in the war. He arrived in San Diego last week, but doesn't have enough money to fly to Oklahoma to his family and they don't have it either.

His mom called the News on 6 and we called the Blue Star Mothers Chapter 1. They agreed to buy Jason's ticket and now, his mother will get her wish of hugging her son.

Marine’s mom Sandy Cohea: "I see too many other people, on the news, where they don't make it and this is a chance to count my blessings."

Jason plans to be home in Oklahoma for about a week before he heads back to California. He may head back to Iraq in March.
