A Marine from the suburbs is back home and will spend the holidays with his family.

Members of Operation Welcome You Home greeted Corporal David Hornbeck as he returned to Romeoville Saturday.

Hornbeck joined the Marines in 2006. Since then, he's served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Most recently, he was stationed in Japan where he helped prepare men and women who were about to be deployed.

After the big welcome, Hornbeck was taken by fire truck to a nearby restaurant.
