DECATUR -- A National Guard pilot is making his way home. Chief Warrant Officer Josh Perrott landed Monday.

He's been on deployment the past three months. He and three others were on a mission in the southwest. Part of their duties included monitoring the border.

This isn't the first time away. He served a year in Iraq. He looks forward to spending time with his wife. She also works in aviation for the Illinois National Guard.
