A local Marine who just returned from Afghanistan received a big welcome home.

Members of the Warriors Watch Riders greeted Sgt. Michael Gaudio outside O'Hare Airport Saturday afternoon. He's served in both Iraq and Afghanistan.

But now the Chicago native is home for a well-deserved break. Gaudio's father is a veteran and retired Chicago police officer.

ABC7 was told Gaudio decided to become a Marine at the age of 6.
