One of our own returned to American soil on Wednesday. Navy Sailor Tara Sewell is now reunited with her children after completing a tour in Afghanistan.

Sewell is a single mother who is stationed here in Corpus Christi. She said being away from her children was a large adjustment.

"You adjust quickly. You just don't think about it," Sewell said. "And I Skype the kids and talk to them, and you just adjust, and it's doable. So it's not easy, but it's doable."

It had been seven months since she last saw her children, and now she is here in Corpus Christi for the next couple of years.
