Albany - - An Albany war veteran is re-united with his family Thursday after two tours to Iraq. 

Sgt. Kenneth Hunt was honored with a soldier's welcome by his family and friends.

He left for Iraq in August 2004 and served for 16 months. Since then, he's been stationed in Alaska. He spent the past several days driving home and was especially glad to see his two daughters and his wife. 

"After not seeing her for so long, she looked different. That was good!" he says with a laugh.

Then his wife chimed in.

"I'm glad he's home. a lot of work needs to be done around the house," Tasha Hunt said while laughing too.

Sgt. Hunt isn't home for long. Next month, he'll move to Fort Lee, Virginia. He's prepared for a possible return to Iraq.
