Special homecoming for soldiers

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - It was a warm welcome home for some of our nation's heroes.

The Pineville High School Interact Club surprised soldiers returning from Afghanistan at the Alexandria International Airport.

They came equipped with signs and cheers. 

For one student, it was a first chance to see her brother-in-law after nine months apart.

"You know I'm really close to him and I just wanted to surprise him as much as I could," said Danielle Dubroc, a PHS student. 

"Pure joy and awesomeness in my heart knowing they care this much so it's amazing. It's an amazing feeling," said Captain Sean McElroy. 

The soldiers will return to Fort Polk for a welcome back ceremony and time with their families.
