It was a Christmas Eve Homecoming Monday night at Will Rogers World Airport for the family of an Army Combat Veteran.

Twenty-two-year-old Nick George has been deployed six times since he enlisted in the Army four years ago.

George hasn't seen his family in more than a year. He's been stationed in Hawaii the past three years.

George's wife and mother were part of a large family contingent who welcomed him home when his flight got into the airport.

"It's very scary. It's very scary time for us," George's mother Kelly said. "He's been through quite a bit."

George has plans to return to Oklahoma to live with his wife, and go to college.
