A Madras soldier got a warm homecoming as he arrived at the Redmond Airport Tuesday. Army Sgt. Ryan Craig, 24, was shot in the head by a sniper while serving in Afghanistan nearly ten months ago. He's been recovering at Walter Reed Military Hospital in Maryland since them, with his mom Jennifer, by his side. “I didn't expect to be emotional as I am. But it's a great relief to have him in our hometown and back with us. It’s pretty amazing, pretty blessed today.” Craig sometimes struggles with language, but he's able to walk and talk, which is a huge step forward. He will head back to Florida next week for more rehabilitation.
