TYLER, TX (KLTV)- She made it through basic training just in time for the holidays. U.S. Army Private Kirstin Roush came back to East Texas and was greeted by a group of people who really love their "work"- the Welcome Home Soldiers group.
Kirstin Roush was a little overwhelmed seeing her boyfriend and family again, but for her, the greeting from Welcome Home Soldiers was almost too much.
"I didn't realize that so many people that I didn't even know were proud of me," Kirstin said.
Before the hug fest, Welcome Home Soldiers had to give Kirstin's boyfriend, Adam Childress, a little recognition during his break from the Air Force. Then it was time for the main act.
Kirstin Roush is a 91-C, which means she fixes heating and cooling.
"Everything from in Hum-V's to giant refrigeration systems that store medicine to save other soldier's lives. So I am a very important role in the United States Army," Kirstin revealed.
