Air Force 2nd Lt. Heidi Carrillo returned to El Paso from Kuwait on Monday.

Carrillo was greeted by her loved ones at the El Paso International Airport.

As Carrillo was holding her 6-year-old daughter Sophia, she described what her flight home was like.

"I got kind of emotional on the flight. I was, like, holding back. But it was great. I almost thought I wasn't going to make it because of the weather in Chicago, but it was good. We made it and thank God we're back," said Carrillo before kissing Sophia.

Carrillo said she is taking some time off to spend with her family before returning to work.
