GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT) -- A hero's welcome. That's what three soldiers got as their returned home to their families on Friday.
But for one family, the wait has been longer than most.
The Andersons, who see their daughter about once a year, welcomed her home. The visit will only last four days, but the family says they'll make every minute count.
Andrea Anderson flew home from Omaha, Nebraska. She'll be home for the weekend before heading off to Washington, D.C. to start a language class.
The 11-year Air Force Sergeant last visited her family around this time last year. Despite rarely seeing her daughter, Diana Anderson says she's very proud of Andrea's accomplishments.
