Henderson community welcomes home Navy E-2

HENDERSON, TX (KLTV) -

A big welcome home Friday for a young lady who's keeping a family tradition of service to country alive.

A roaring reception for Navy E-2 Kimberly Centers as she arrived home in Henderson.

Centers was greeted by Welcome Home Soldier members and her family.

The 19-year-old Henderson High graduate comes from an impressive family line. Her father, grand-father and great-grand-father all served in the military.

Willie Centers, Kimberly's father stated, "I am very proud of my daughter. This is the best thing possibly that could happen to her, I'm very proud of her achievements."

"I like it," says Kimberly, "It's an honor--makes me feel good doing what I do,"

Centers is home for two weeks leave before returning to duty in California.
