OMAHA (KPTM)- The number of US Marines coming to Omaha on Thursday might have been small.
"You say-there's only two marines. There are two marines coming home," said Scott Vadon.
Two Marines that received a heroes welcome. "I would stand in the worst type of weather, on broken glass, barefooted to welcome just one marine home because they deserve it," said Vadon.
Vadon is a Patriot Guard Rider, who helped escort Sgts. Keegan Borer and Marc Chlopek home.
Mary Miller, Chlopek's sister-in-law, said she was amazed by the warm reception. "It means that much more to us to know our family has that support."
Support that Vadon promised to give, "We sleep well at night because they are out there doing what they do."
Sergeants Borer and Chlopek served in Afghanistan for over six months. They helped repair equipment.
"I don't think a lot of people realize how good it is back in the states. It's just desert wasteland-there's nothing," said Borer.
Borer was welcomed by over a dozen family members. "I was nervous."
Chlopek said he's happy to be home and be with his family. His 18-month-year old nephew, Rider, was there to give his uncle a big welcome. "It's awesome-he's just running around destroying stuff-it's just good to see him having fun," said Chlopek.
Borer said, he's already planning on serving again. "My enlistment comes up in a couple of months so I told myself I'll reenlist then. I told myself as long as I like, I'm just gonna keep doing it."
Vadon said, as long as there are troops out there, he'll keep on riding. "When they touch down here at eppley-I got their-they've had my back as long as they've been out there."
