Hawkinsville Marine Tony Mullis Running Again

One year ago Friday, a Hawkinsville Marine set out on a mission to clear explosives in a northern Afghan town.

He left that day filled with the pride of just becoming a father. His son was born the night before.

Mullis would not come back from that mission the same man. He did make it to the only place he ever wants to be, and that's home.

The Hawkinsville High school stadium brings back many memories for Tony and Jeannie Mullis. It is where they met, and where they want their son, who turned a year old Thursday, to go to school.

Father and son are inseparable now, but Tony heard Cason's first cries over a satellite phone, while he was in Afghanistan.

Mullis said, "It was sad, because I wasn't there, but I was happy because I have son."
