VONORE (WATE) – A Monroe County soldier came home Monday after his seventh tour of duty. 

Staff Sgt. Darian Goodman's latest deployment to Afghanistan lasted ten months. 

He reunited with his wife and three kids, among whom are two eight-month-olds he had only seen once. 

"Since 2010, I've been deployed twice," said Goodman. "It's a long time coming.  It's a long time to spend in Afghanistan."

Earlier in his career, Goodman served as a Marine.  He completed his latest tour with the Army National Guard.
