East Texas Iraq vet home for good

By Samantha Jordan sjordan@kltv.com

An East Texan is back home for good.

Army Specialist Dedrick Walker has recently returned from a deployment in Iraq, serving as a physician's assistant.

Specialist Walker says being home brings on many feelings, telling KLTV 7, "I love it. I appreciate all of this. Back in Kansas at Fort Riley, there's not a lot of military around, so you don't get treated special like I am right now so I like it."

Specialist Walker says he's now planning to attend SFA State University to study psychiatry. He says he'd like to help his fellow servicemen and women with PTSD and other war-related conditions.
