Soldier is home for good after 25 years of service

TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

Master Sergeant Paul Shofner has spent time in Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan during his 25 years of service in the U.S. Army and U.S. Army Reserve. And, after spending nine months in Kuwait...he is home for good.

Over the past nine months...his wife, Kim Shofner has been eagerly awaiting his return.

"I just wanted to melt. My soldier's back," she said.

Master Sergeant Shofner was one of the Senior NCOs for water and petroleum in the Middle East.

Even though he takes pride in his work overseas...his greatest work is here with his family. And, besides his family...he did miss something else.

"Just a good, Texas steak," he told us.

In February, Shofner will be promoted to Command Sergeant Major.
