Soldiers visiting home get surprise welcome

November 27, 2009 (CHICAGO) Sergeant Angel Cavanaugh and her friend, Sergeant Mark Faulkner, are visiting Angel's mom, Emily Hildenbrand.

Operation Welcome You Home organized a big show of support with the help of the Warrior Watch Riders.

"It's great to know you're able to come home and spend time with family and know there's people out there that appreciate you regardless of who you are. They don't even know you, and they're just grateful you're here, it's a good feeling," Cavanaugh said.

Sergeant Cavanaugh served overseas and is currently based in South Carolina.
