A big homecoming was scheduled Saturday morning for six Chicago-area Marines returning from Iraq.One of those is Marine Sergeant Raymundo Galarza of Schaumburg. In May, he got to see his newborn baby girl from Iraq via satellite. His wife, Monica, has not seen her husband since last December. Saturday's homecoming for the Marine gunnery ends his second tour of duty in Iraq.

Sergeant Galarza and five other Southwest Side Marines were scheduled to land at Midway Airport just after 9 a.m.

A reception will be held shortly afterward at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont.
