Army Sergeant Joseph Alvarado is on leave from his second tour of duty in Iraq. But the Bryan High graduate from the class of 1995 got back in country Friday, and his family made their first stop for good old American grill from Ken Martin's.
A soldier for six years, Alvarado will finish his latest tour in March of next year.
