This Independence Day will certainly be a special one for one Crestwood family.

Army Specialist Brad Liberio, 22, is home after being deployed in Afghanistan for the last year. Friends and family lined the streets as members of the Patriot Guard, police and fire fighters escorted him during a homecoming celebration on Tuesday.

"Thank you for your time and support. It really means the world to me. It's looks like I have no emotion but there's just so much going through my body right now it's kind of hard to comprehend," Liberio said.

He will now have 30 days of leave before returning to duty. That's long enough for him to also spend his next birthday with his family and friends on July 31.
