On a train bound from Erie, Pennsylvania, a Marine is coming home.
"This is huge, because twice he got bumped off a plane to come home. So when we finally heard he was coming home, my husband and I couldn't be prouder that he is going to be in Rochester," said Pat Fuehrer, Matthew's mother.
"If anything it's made us stronger, and it makes you realize how important family, like how important they are and how important your support system is. And I love him so much and I'm so proud of him," said Emily Sullivan, Matthew's girlfriend.
Eighteen months after serving his country in Afghanistan, Matthew Fuehrer is modest in what he accomplished.
"You sign up to go protect your country and when you go overseas you do that and you represent America the best you can. I think I did an amazing job at it," he said.
And now back home in Rochester, Matthew has one simple request:
"Honestly, I just want to fall asleep."
