A Chicago-area Marine got a warm welcome home Wednesday afternoon. Lance Corporal James Reichers is returning to Crystal Lake after a seven-month tour of duty in Iraq.

The very happy Marine gave his little sister a kiss, and there were lots of hugs from family and friends.

Lance Corporal Reichers was escorted home by members of a local veterans group called Warriors Watch.

There's also a party and reception in his honor.
