CANTON, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas town is honored their returning son. Monday night, there was a "Welcome Home" dinner for U.S. Army Major Keith Pruitt and his family in Canton.
Keith is a graduate of Canton High School, class of 1987. Supporters and well-wishers gathered to show Keith how much they appreciate his service. This was his third tour of duty, second in Iraq, and he said he has seen a lot of positive changes lately.
"The government of Iraq is really coming to the forefront and knocking the ball out of the park," said Major Pruitt. "[They are] really taking control to where we are more in a support role and our young men and women are really knocking the ball out of the park as far as helping and supporting the government of Iraq."
