East Texas Airman Marries High School Sweetheart

An East Texas airman married his high school sweetheart today, but he'll soon have to leave home again.

We first told you about the couple last week. Gregory Janes, 20, came home from the Kunsan Airbase in South Korea.

This afternoon, he tied the knot with Brittany Kelley, 17, at the Tyler Rose Garden. The newlyweds get only nine days together before Gregory has to go back to South Korea for four more months.

But right now, they're just enjoying the moment.

"We're just very, very excited to finally get this done and over with," Gregory Janes said. "We've been waiting a long, long time for this. We're both really excited that we finally get to say 'I do' and finally get to be Mr. and Mrs. Janes."

After his final four months in South Korea, Gregory will come back home to Lindale. He and Brittany will then move to Italy together, where Gregory will continue his service in the Air Force.
