US Navy Homecoming

NPR's Tom Goldman reports from Whidbey Island Naval Air Station on yesterday's return of 24 crew members from 11 days in captivity in China. This was the first opportunity for the full crew to publicly discuss the incident that led to the emergency landing of their EP-3E spy plane on Hainan Island. Thousands of supporters were on hand to welcome them home.
