An East Tennessee soldier is back home after nearly a year overseas.

Corporal Todd MacFaun landed at McGhee Tyson Airport Friday afternoon.

He served in Kuwait for 9 months and has been away from his family for 11 months. While he was gone, his family got bigger, and he finally got to meet his new baby girl at the airport. He also got to see some changes in his older daughter, who he says is talking a lot more.

Mom says after almost a year without dad, she's happy to get some help with the girls.

After spending time with family, Corporal MacFaun will go to work for the Knoxville Police Department.
