Matt Fuehrer arrived at the Amtrak station Thursday morning. He's been in Afghanistan for five and a half months.
His mother and girlfriend planned the surprise homecoming for him. His second family, the Rochester Fire Department, also welcomed him home.
Fuehrer will be leaving the Marines next month. He says his first order of business is to take a vacation.
