Soldier Comes Home

An East Texas solider fighting in Iraq is back home tonight. Sergeant Abram Bridges has served in Iraq over the last year. This was his second tour in the country. He, his daughter, and wife all flew in from Germany this evening to spend a week with family and friends.

Michelle Mortensen met up with him Monday night and talked to him about being home.

"Why is it good to be home in Texas right now?"

"Wow," said Sergeant Abram Bridges. "Many things. I felt the love of everyone in Texas when I was over there. Another reason, I don't have to deal with violence over there."

Sergeant Bridges said its been tough over there but that the army is accomplishing a great deal toward maintaining peace. He said while he is home with his wife, daughter and parents he wants to relax and eat some Mexican food.
