Navy Officers, Sailors Return Home

Posted:
LEMOORE, Calif. (KMPH) -

It was a big day for Sam Laginess who has been the man of the house for the last eight months.

On Monday, Sam, his two sisters and his mother, Holly, waited alongside dozens of other families at Naval Air Station Lemoore for the arrival of their loved ones from active duty.

Jake Laginess, a navy lieutenant, arrived on the third plane into the Lemoore after serving in Afghanistan since October. It was a welcomed sight for his family.

"[I've]been waiting for this moment for eight months," Jake said. "Getting to see them and hold them, seeing how excited they are to see their dad again."

And for Sam, he gets to go back to being a kid again because his dad is finally home.
