"I can't put it in words without being too cliche about it," Miller said about his reception. "You come in to this airport so many times and just get this nostalgia of being in Buffalo and Western New York, and I love it every time. This one is obviously extra special."
Miller is credited with saving the lives of others at Fort Hood on April 2nd. After he was shot, Miller continued to help other soldiers find shelter while still applying pressure to his own wound. He won't call himself a hero, though.
"I don't consider myself a hero at all, it's the people that don't come home, that make the ultimate sacrifice and don't get the welcome home ceremonies. Those are the true heroes."
Miller now returns to his Allegany home. His homecoming plans include a clambake and parade, of which he was named the Grand Marshall.
