Smithville- From the front lines of the battlefield to the arms of loved ones, Sgt. Tauris Johnson is happy to be back in the United States.
"As soon as we got off the plane it was like a hero's welcome they had the banners and everything for us," he says.
But nothing could compare to the homecoming he received from friends and family.
"It makes you feel like you did something worth doing because everybody supports you and everything," admits Johnson.
While Johnson was in Iraq shooting down hostile aircraft his family in Smithville was praying his safe return.
"I called him and he said ma'dea I got faith and I'm gonna make it. I said pray because I'm praying, and he made it back," says his grandmother, Geraldine Johnson.
"We just were worried because we weren't hearing from him much while he was over there, and we just were concerned and we're just glad and it's a blessing for him to be back here," adds his cousin, Rhonda Brown.
Johnson says hope gave him the strength to keep fighting; hope that he would see his family again and hope that he could return the love that they had given him.
Sgt. Johnson plans to continue his career in the army. He says he really enjoys his job and will retire only after he's served twenty years.
