A suburban soldier who just returned from Afghanistan was surprised with a big welcome home Monday night.

Twenty-four-year-old Army Specialist Ryan Rudman flew into O'Hare Airport.

During a stop in Lemont, he was surprised by a convoy of supporters that escorted him home.

Specialist Rudman has completed two tours of duty, one in Iraq and another in Afghanistan. Rudman's visit to Lemont will last three weeks.
