"I'm hungry. I want to take a shower, and hang out with everyone, but I haven't slept in two days," he said.

Meeks' wife Valerie said she is glad he's home, but it also reminds her of those who can't come home. "It's just kind of a double edge sword because there are still a lot of people out there and some that aren't coming home. I'm glad he's one that did come home," she said.
