A Lubbock soldier is spending time with his family for the first time in months.
A host of family members held up signs at the Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport on Wednesday afternoon to welcome Sgt. Marco Martinez. Martinez has been serving with the Texas Army National Guard in Iraq.
He will spend the next two weeks in Lubbock golfing and celebrating birthdays and graduations. Then he heads back to Iraq.
