A nearly four-and-a-half year nightmare has ended for the Hekmati family of Flint.
Marine veteran Amir Hekmati was reunited today with his sisters and brother-in-law at the U.S. Army hospital in Landstuhl, Germany.
That's where he and two other Americans were taken after being released from an Iranian prison over the weekend.
Hekmati had been a prisoner of Iran since August of 2011.
U.S. Rep. Dan Kildee, D-Flint, was there with the Hekmati family. He has been working for Hekmati's release ever since he was elected to Congress in 2013.
