Wounded Warrior receives hero's welcome

A Wounded Warrior is home in time for Thanksgiving.

Army Staff Sergeant Dominic Annecchini arrived to a warm welcome at the Santa Maria airport on Tuesday afternoon.

He's been deployed ten times -- four times to Iraq and six to Afghanistan.

Back in May, he was severely injured in an attack in Afghanistan.

"There was a barricaded shooter and he shot the guy in front of me, and I had to call up that we had a wounded and we had a barricaded shooter," explained Annecchini. "Last thing I remember was pulling security at the door. The next thing I remember was waking up in Germany."

Staff Sergeant Annecchini is the recipient of a Purple Heart and a Silver Star for Valor.
