Department of Defense Civilian returns home from deployment

Posted: Updated:

It was a homecoming today for one department of defense civilian.

After a one year deployment to Afghanistan, Eric Clemens arrived at Albany Southwest regional airport with welcome arms.

The Department of Defense Civilian returned after a one year deployment in Afghanistan. He was overseas when Osama Bin laden was killed, and said morale is still high in the area he was stationed. But claims the  troops are more focused on the task at hand.

His six day flight was very long and hard but he is happy to be with his family. He will return to Afghanistan after 45 days, but not before he visits south Carolina.
