A Naperville Marine with three purple hearts returned home after his second tour in Iraq.Lance Corporal Tony Mihalo was welcomed back by family and friends with signs, balloons and hugs when he arrived at Midway Airport Friday afternoon. Now, he's looking forward to enjoying some Chicago pizza and time with loved ones.

"Basically, catch up with old friends, hang out, have a good time, relax, see the family. (I) haven't seem them in awhile. That's one thing I want to do," said Mihalo.

Naperville's mayor George Pradel also met up with the Marine to give him a ride home in a limo.

Mihalo is home for about a month. Then he returns to a Marine base in California.
