Soldiers come home for Christmas

Justin and Kimmy Emery Justin and Kimmy Emery

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - Justin and Kimmy Emery  have been all to both Iraq and Afghanistan. They met while serving in the U.S. Army and married a little over a year ago.

And today, they both arrived in East Texas for Christmas.

Originally from Chicago, this is Kimmy's first time in East Texas.

The couple made the rounds, shaking hands as the crowd cheered. For Justin's mom, Jennifer Gabbard, this day was long overdue.

"It's amazing. Haven't seen him since September 2010," she told us.
