The holidays were very happy for a suburban Marine who was home Wednesday night with friends and family.

Lance Corporal Alex Spencer has been deployed twice, most recently to Afghanistan.

A party was held in his honor Wednesday night in Elmhurst and the Warriors Watch Riders dropped in as a surprise.

Spencer enlisted in 2009 and would like to become a music teacher when his military service is complete.
