It was an emotional return home for one local soldier Thursday night.
U.S. Army Lieutenant William Smith returned to Rochester after serving the last eleven months overseas. Friends and family gathered at the Greater Rochester International Airport to welcome him back.
The lieutenant says it's the little things we might take for granted that he missed most while he was away.
He says, "The American people, my family, my friends. You miss a lot of things, like just being able to drive your car around."
Smith also says, "Someone already mentioned a garbage plate, so of course I got to get one of those."
News10NBC would also like to welcome back Lieutenant Smith and thank him for his service to our country.
