Army Specialist Willis Blackshire of Huntington arrived home Sunday after spending nine months in Baghdad. For the past couple of days, Blackshire has been busy catching up with family and friends. What a difference a week makes.
On Christmas Eve, he was performing raids, going through people's houses checking for weapons. Willis has to report back to Baghdad on January 13th. So, it doesn't give him much time to spend with his parents, who say they are very proud of their son, but they also worry.
"You have nightmares about where he's at and what he's doing... that's my baby, I'm scared... scared to death. You don't know what's going to happen." said Blackshire's father, Wills Sr.
