LONGVIEW,TX (KLTV)- A big welcome home was given in Longview tonight, as two servicemen arrived back home for some much deserved leave. Marine Corps private first class Matt James and Army specialist Jarred Baker got a hero's welcome as they walked into East Texas Regional Airport earlier tonight. Baker is home after serving tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, while James has recently completed training and is scheduled to deploy to Afghanistan after his leave period. Both men were welcomed by members of the Patriot Guard and members of "Welcome Home Soldiers."
