Longview Soldier Home After 4th Iraq Tour

     It was a quiet reunion today in Gregg county, as a weary air force officer returns home from Iraq. Air force captain Farrell Svatek arrived at east Texas regional airport this morning to family and friends. Svatek has served four tours of duty in Iraq, from desert storm to Iraqi freedom. The last three tours he served as a physician assistant helping save the lives of injured Iraqi children. His family says they are grateful to have him home safe.  

      Svatek is home for three weeks, and hopes to receive orders to be stationed state-side. Bob Hallmark reporting/bhallmark@kltv.com
