Three United States Marines returned home Wednesday, arriving at Marine Corps Logistics Base Albany.
Family and friends stood by, waiting for their loved ones to return and showered them with hugs and kisses as the vans pulled up.
When asked what it means to have that support back home, Corporal Anthony Vagnini says you can sum it up in one word.
"Appreciation, appreciation for the support, for the consideration, and knowing that people care," said Corporal Vagnini.
Vagnini went on to say that he's just excited to be back home, and looks forward to spending time with friends and family.
