Soldier comes home

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Army Lieutenant from Albany got a big welcome home Monday night at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport.

Noah Clay served as a project manager for strategic communications for the entire Middle east and was overseas for two years.

He says it was bittersweet leaving his unit, and he's looking forward to his next assignment, but he's glad to be home for now.

"I'm glad to be back in Georgia. It's always been my home. Until actually I was deployed out I had never lived outside the state of Georgia. So it is good to be home for a little while," Lt. Clay said.

After a couple of weeks on leave here in south Georgia, Clay will be stationed at Joint Base Lewis McCord in Washington state where his fiancee is.
