BUFFALO, NY-- A Western New York solider injured in the Fort Hood, texas shooting earlier this year, has returned home for a visit.
Army Major Patrick Miller of Allegany arrived in Buffalo Friday afternoon to dozens of family and friends who were waiting for him at the airport.
Miller was shot in the abdomen during the April rampage, but was still able to lead seven people to safety by herding them into an office and locking the doors.
Miller told reporters on Friday that he got emotional as the plane touched down in Buffalo.
The Patriot Guard escorted Major Miller to his hometown of Allegany Friday afternoon for his first visit in years. For Miller, it was bittersweet.
