CHERRY HILL, N.J. -

Friends, family, and members of the Warriors Watch greet soldier Francesca "Chessie" Vollaro with open arms, in Cherry Hill today.

The 21-year-old arrived home from Afghanistan three weeks ago, where she served with the US Army.

Vollaro was shocked by the outpouring of support.

"It made me cry the whole time. I didn't really have something like this three weeks ago," says Vollaro. "It's good to know that everyone's out here to support me and my fellow troops and veterans."

Vollaro joined the army after graduating high school in 2010.

Now that she's home, vollaro says she wants to become a police officer, and continue to serve her community.
