An Army sergeant who is a veteran of five tours of duty in Iraq got a big welcome home Tuesday in suburban Cicero.

The Warriors Watch Riders escorted Sergeant Francisco Barba to the town hall as he rode in a Cicero fire truck.

Barba is a single parent with a 4-year-old son named Tristan. Wednesday, the sergeant was presented with a certificate and thanked for his hard work.

Sergeant Barba has also earned several medals and awards while in the service.
