A total of nine service men arrived at Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport this morning, they started their journey home in Iraq.

Lt. Col. Mark Harmon returned home for only the second time in three years.

He was accompanied by eight military service members of the 413th Civil Affairs Battallion stationed at the army reserve center in Lubbock.

Harmon is not only in the reserves but he's also a detective for the Amarillo Police Department.

Harmon's wife says he plans on retiring in the next few years, and she hopes he doesn't have to take another tour of duty.
