CONWAY, Ark. (KTHV) -A veteran, who was severely wounded during his second tour in Afghanistan, finally returned to his hometown on Sunday.
Carl Wayne Moore III was hurt in action on June 4, 2013 and has spent the last two years traveling to several states in the U.S. just trying recover and learn how to live with a spinal cord injury.
For Moore and his wife Heather, Sunday marked their first trip back to Arkansas since he left for his first tour to Afghanistan.
"Lots and lots has changed, but just being able to see my family and friends that I haven't seen in close to four years is...there's no words," said Moore.
While his recovery has been rough, Moore is adamant about his future. He plans to return to the VA in Tampa to continue his recovery, and says he will stay there until he's out of his wheelchair.
