Stars and stripes welcome home soldier

By Kelly Hefelfinger

Folks in Longview welcomed home one of their own Monday night, as Lieutenant john Leatherman returned from Afghanistan, where he's been deployed since August.

He says he feels a little guilty to be home while his fellow soldiers are still serving, but it's still nice to have the support.

Lt. Leatherman will be home for 15 days before heading back to Afghanistan to finish his tour of duty.
