Maj. Brent Taylor has returned to Utah.

"He is finally returning home," said his wife, Jennie Taylor.

"On behalf of our family, I would like to thank you for being a part of this important homecoming," Taylor said Wednesday as the family awaited the fallen hero's arrival at the Roland R. Wright Air National Guard Base in Salt Lake City.

She said the family wore yellow to welcome Taylor home, "as women have done since the days of World War II."

"Today he comes home to so many of his friends, family members … and Major Taylor is also coming home to his brothers in arms. This is a tender day for all of us," Taylor said.
