He just completed an 11-month tour of duty in Iraq and returned home amid the U.S. troop drawdown in that country.

" I'm just glad to be back home, and I appreciate you all coming out here to greet me and everything you've done for me. Being a soldier is easy, coming home is always a blessing and I'm glad to be back," said Hart.

Sergeant Hart's tour of duty in Iraq was the second he had served overseas. The first was in Afghanistan.
