OKLAHOMA CITY -

Thanksgiving is the busiest Holiday of the year at Will Rogers International Airport. 

The Sunday after Thanksgiving is actually busier than any other day of the year. Wednesday afternoon, you didn't have to look far to see a homecoming or two. 

Air Force Logistics Planner Kevin Gauthier has been stationed overseas for at least half of the past five years. His wife and two sons and other family members came from Choctaw to greet him. 

"It seems like when you go away everything goes wrong, and it did this time," he said.  "And it is good to be home." 

Gauthier says he plans to do one more year in the military and then retire. He says he would like to open a bar in Choctaw when he gets out.
