Sgt. Nick McWharter of Meridian arrived at the Meridian Regional Airport early Wednesday afternoon. He had been in Iraq since January. He's home for two weeks leave, much to the delight of his family.
"It's a rush. He's finally home; he's home and he's safe. He's here for two weeks, then he has to back," said Margie McWharter, Nick's mother.
McWharter is a member of the 150th Combat Engineering Battalion.
