Marines Return to Lubbock

It was a happy homecoming at Lubbock Preston Smith International Airport Thursday. Friends and family welcomed home nine U.S. Marines home with signs, banners and hugs. Sgt. Matt Allison says he's glad to be home and was proud to serve with fellow Marines from Lubbock. "Lubbock has great Marines. They really perform and made a showing in Iraq." Sgt. Allison and the rest of the marines say the first thing they want to do in Lubbock is eat good Mexican food.
