(KMOV) -- It was an awesome Christmas Eve night for Private First Class Raymond Huey and his family.
Huey just finished a ten-month tour in Afghanistan risking his life removing roadside bombs. Somehow it worked out he got home on Christmas Eve. His cousins, mother and girlfriend were there to greet him at the airport at 8pm... along with one person he'd never met. His three-month old daughter.
She didn't make a peep as Raymond picked her up and held her for the first time. It was a great moment and we're glad his cousin Tamika called us and invited us to share it with our viewers and readers.
Raymond's 21-years-old, and says he's not anywhere near finished serving his country.
Welcome home, Raymond!
