A local solider experienced "deja vu" Tuesday at Lehigh Valley International Airport.

Army Sgt. Joel Hummer has returned from a nine-month tour in Afghanistan -- his second deployment.

Joel's family and Warriors' Watch, a military support group, welcomed him home.

They also did this for his first deployment in 2008.

Joel was delighted by the surprise which his mom helped organize.

Warrior Watch also provided Joel with an escort from the airport to his home in Easton.
