The Marines of the Second Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion Alpha Company, along with their naval corpsman, have just returned from a seven-month tour on the front lines in Iraq. In fact, they haven't even been home yet. Their first stop is The Oprah Show for a big homecoming celebration!

"I just have to say how much we appreciate the opportunity to be here," Captain James Williamson, commander of Alpha Company, says. "But most importantly, the support that all of America continues to show for our magnificent men and women of the armed forces."
