Gilmer Marine Comes Home

It was a very emotional day for one East Texas family, as a Marine came home from war. That would be enough excitement for one day. But, this Marine was also meeting the newest addition to his family, for the first time. Like countless other women during the war, Jody Tucker stayed home while her husband went off to war. Jody had the couple's second child, while husband Travis was fighting in Iraq. And like all those wives, she was worried that he might not come back. Family and friends were on hand today, anxiously waiting, as Travis came home. And the 6-foot-6 marine shed his tough image for a more important job.. that of being a father.
