Another local hero is home from the war in Iraq. Corporal Matthew Rodriguez has been stationed in Baghdad for the past four months with the Marines Fleet Anti Terrorism Security Team.
He came home Saturday. Rodriguez says the best part of returning from Iraq is the people.
"The best feeling is when you come back because you have people, like the people standing behind me here, you have them and you know you have them with you wherever you are at. It's just a great feeling to see the expression on their faces when you come back. They just give you a great sense of home when you come back. It's just the most awesome feeling in the world," said Rodriguez.
Rodriguez will be home for about two weeks before returning to Norfolk, Virginia.
