By request, the San Antonio International Airport offers a free service to the friends and families of deployed service members......a welcome home hero celebration.
Navy analyst petty officer Kevin Bruehler was greeted this week.
"It's incredible, it's incredible. I can't believe they took time out of their day to come down here to say welcome back. I really appreciate it. It's incredible. It's mind boggling, the things that they do, that's awesome"
Bruehler says, now that he's back he just wants to relax a bit, have some sushi, and sleep in.
As they arrive, service members are welcomed with flags, banners and cheers by airport ambassadors, employees and patrons of the airport.
