Grand Junction - Another one of the Western Slope's finest is back home for the holidays. Late Wednesday morning, Airman Angela Abeyta from Delta arrived home to a hero's welcome at the Grand Junction Regional Airport.

Abeyta is currently stationed in Texas for technical training. She says she's excited to be home for Christmas, and is looking forward to her two week break.

"Just some good-home cooked meals. That's all I'm looking forward to. And maybe some sledding if the snow comes," said Abeyta.

Along with friends and family, Abeyta was welcomed home by the Blue Star Mothers along with veterans from the local VFW.
