Jordan said he was very surprised when he saw the patriot guard and his parents say they are thrilled to have him back home.
“It's amazing, we're so happy, tickled to death, couldn't wait, when your kids of off to college you know you're still close to them, but when they go serve their country, you lose contact with them sometimes, he was gone for thirteen weeks to boot camp, deployed 8 or 9 months, you don't hear from him every day,” says Steven and Stacey Bull.
