A warm welcome for a pair of soldiers as they arrive home for the holidays.
Combat medic Traci Sturdevant is a graduate of T.C. Roberson. She arrived at the Asheville Airport Friday morning with her husband, Chris, who's also a combat medic. The pair have been on deployment in Afghanistan and came home to spend Christmas with Traci's family.
The couple were greeted by loved ones, members of the Patriot Guard and perfect strangers who lined up with flags to show their respect. Traci and Chris will be in town until the beginning of January. She says the thing she's looking forward to the most is a home-cooked meal.
