Welcome Home a Hero, in First Person

For five years, Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport has operated its Welcome Home a Hero program, which has brought thousands out to the airport to welcome home soldiers on leave or just passing through. And though it's been well-covered -- here's the ABC World News piece from '07 -- till I came across this video, I'd never seen the meet-and-greet line from a soldier's perspective.

KEEP THE DALLAS OBSERVER FREE... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
