NEWARK - Corporal Matthew Adornetto returned home to New Jersey on Friday after 10 months in Afghanistan.

"We're happy to see each other," says Adornetto's father, John Adornetto. "It's been 10 months, 10 long months. His mother's real happy."

Adornetto, of Freehold, says he's glad to be home. "I'm just ready to go home, sleep in a real bed, and just do what I did before I left," he says.
