ALBANY,  GA (WALB) – A young Marine got a warm welcome at the Marine Corps Logistics Base Tuesday night. 21-year-old Lance Corporal Michael Canter returned to Albany just a couple of weeks before his 22nd birthday after serving six months at Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan.

He performed maintenance work on vehicles and served on security details. His family lives in Indiana and he won't see them until after Christmas. He says there's one special family member he's most excited to see.

"Yes, I've got a younger brother who's only three and this will be the second time I've seen him so I'm looking forward to that," said LCpl. Michael Canter, MCLB Albany Maintenance Center.

Canter says he was proud to serve his country overseas and would jump at the chance to go again... But he is looking forward to hot showers and a little rest.
