"It's awesome. I've missed him a lot. What's it like to have them home? It's wonderful. Time to get back to normal. Everyone says he looks like a little mini-me . He's grown a lot. Totally different from the last time," said Tech Sgt. Nathan Michaud.

"It felt awesome to see my kids especially the one that I've never met before. It was surreal. I can't even put it into words. I just want to spend as much time with them as I can and enjoy every minute. You take for granted a lot of the times you have together until you have to be away from them for this long. It definitely gave us a new appreciation, for what our families do for us," said Tech Sgt. Tim Nason.

they said the 101st CES is home for good.
