ALBANY, GA (WALB) - After six long months overseas, two Marines based in Albany were welcomed home by family and fellow Marines.

This was the scene at the Albany Airport just after eleven this morning. Staff Sergeant Henry Watts and Major Jonathan Hinckley, both assigned to the 4th Marine Logistics Group at MCLB Albany, returned after a six month stint in Afghanistan.

Both are glad to be back home. "Has this little one changed any?" "They all changed, got a little bigger," said SSGT Watts "And how does it feel for you Amanda [Watts]?" "It feels really good, it does."

Major Jonathan Hinckley said, "Afghanistan to Kuwait and from Kuwait to Germany, from there to Baltimore and there to Atlanta and from there to here. It took a week to get back here, so I'm glad to be back."

The two Marines will go through post-deployment training and then get some time off to spend with their families.
