HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - As people flock to the beach for the Fourth of July celebration, one local family is celebrating just being together after almost a year apart.

Following almost a year in Afghanistan, Army Specialist Sean Odom returned home Tuesday to be a husband and a father to his sons.

Sean’s wife, Brooke Odom, said while the time away from her husband was difficult, knowing what he has missed with their two boys, Evan and Carson, was the hardest.

“There is so much I’ve got to catch on,” Sean said.  

Sean has been enlisted for over three years. Now that’s he’s back home, he and his family are looking forward to spending the holiday together.
