Local soldier returns home from deployment

Ryan John Hernandez Returns from 2nd deployment

A local soldier has returned from another deployment overseas.

Ryan John Hernandez is a soldier of the Wisconsin National Guard.

After a 2 month training session in Texas Hernandez spent 9 months in Afghanistan, but after everything he’s been through he says he’s just happy to be with friends and family.

“To ask for your family, you know, your cousins that you’ve grown up with, to come all the state to spend some time with you, it’s amazing, to have my wife and my kids here, it just feels really good,” said Hernandez.

This was Hernandez’s 2nd deployment.
