Tyler soldier receives warm welcome home

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas soldier received a warm welcome home in Tyler, Sunday.

U.S. Army Specialist, Bill Jolley, has served three tours in Iraq. His unit returned to Iraq two weeks ago, but he was not able to go with them because of a broken foot.

The "Welcome Home Soldiers" committee greeted Jolley at the El Charro restaurant in Tyler.

His grandmother is one of the faithful "Welcome Home" volunteers.

This is the first time Jolley has been home in the past five years.
