INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Dec. 24, 2014) - The wind and rain that battered Indiana Wednesday were not enough to deter travelers that were headed home.

There was one Christmas reunion no storm could stop.

“We’re real excited to see him,” said Tom Schott, as he sat waiting in the Indianapolis International Airport.  A father waiting to see his son on Christmas Eve; Schott would be reunited with him for the first time since spring.

Brother William Schott awaited his arrival as well.  It had been two long years in the making.

“It’s going to be a lot of fun; a lot of debate between who’s better,” said William.

Both brothers are in the service.  William is in the Air Force and his brother is a Marine flying in from California.

“[There's a] 20 minute delay right now,” said Tom.

Dad was tracking his every move.  He waited with mom on pins and needles.  Until that moment when that brother, that son, that Marine walked into the terminal.

“It’s good to be home,” he told his parents.

Delays were minimal at the airport Wednesday and there were no cancellations.  The biggest holdups were with flights coming from the northeast.
