Deployed East Texan gets warm reception upon return

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) -

A big welcome home for an East Texas man back from a Middle East deployment. At East Texas regional airport, airman first class Tanner Allen was welcomed by family and friends.

A native of Tatum, Allen has been deployed in Qatar for the last six months. The airman was impressed by the effort made by Welcome Home Soldier members to give him the patriotic reception on the holiday weekend.

Allen is on leave for 10 days before going to his new duty station in Japan.
