Michigan troops home from Afghanistan

Michigan community celebrates soldiers' homecoming
Veterans, family and friends gathered inside Muskegon Catholic Central High School for the rally to welcome home the 180th Transportation Company. The unit spent 13 months fighting in the Afghanistan desert.
Among them was Private First Class Derrick Jackson. "It's great - great to see something that's green. Just being able to spend time with my family - it's a good feeling," Jackson said. Courtney Jackson's eyes light up watching her husband hold their 7 month old son Tyler. "It's so weird I'm used to doing everything by myself. It's kind of nice to have help," Jackson said.
In addition to hanging out with his son, Jackson says he's also looking forward to sleeping in and going hunting.
