LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - A hero's welcome today in Gregg County for an East Texas soldier.

With "Welcome Home Soldier" and the "Patriot Guard" on hand,  Private First Class Scott Grimes of the Army Reserve returned home from duty in Iraq. Grimes, a White Oak graduate, said he was a bit overwhelmed by the reception.

"It means a lot to me. We go over there just doing our job and come back home knowing people still appreciate what we do.  Always good, always good," said Grimes.

Grimes is on leave for two weeks, and then he will return to Iraq.
