Kelly Carrigan, 3rd Sergeant, "It was a wonderful gift, a wonderful surprise to be able to see my daughters for the first time and be able to surprise them."
Taylor Carrigan, "I flipped out. I was not expecting that at all. That was crazy. That was amazing."
Now that he's back, Sergeant Carrigan says he'll be spending lots of quality time with the entire family.
