One local soldier returned to Meridian from Iraq Saturday, January 16th.

Latasha Hodges has been in Iraq since March. Hodges was welcomed back at Meridian's Key Field by her family's warm embraces. She says it was wonderful to see everyone and it feels great to be home.

"It feels great. It's been a long term. I've been gone since March and I'm finally home for a couple of weeks. I've got to go back, unfortunately, but, I'm blessed," expresses Hodges.

Hodges says she doesn't have a long time to visit, but it is well worth the trip back.
