A soldier who's been serving in Afghanistan got a big welcome home in Romeoville Sunday.

Joshua Cruz is a mechanic who's been serving with the 863rd Engineer Battalion. His unit had been on a 10-month tour of duty.

He was greeted by his wife and two sons. Then, an organization called Operation Welcome Home escorted the family to their home.

Cruz says he will continue serving in the Army Reserves.
