TRAVIS AIR FORCE BASE — Airman 1st Class Spencer Stone returned Thursday to the U.S. to a hero's welcome upon landing at Travis Air Force Base nearly two weeks after he and two childhood friends gained worldwide recognition for overpowering a heavily armed gunman on a Paris-bound train.

The 23-year-old from Sacramento descended a staircase from the plane, was greeted by family members and then headed along a walkway toward the passenger terminal, while about 300 military family members cheered and waved American flags.

"Welcome Home A1C Stone" flashed on a nearby marquee.

Stone, along with Alek Skarlatos, 22, and Anthony Sadler, 23, were hailed as heroes for overpowering Ayoub El Khazzani after he opened fire on a Paris-bound train Aug. 21. They received the Legion d'honneur – France’s highest honor – from France's President Francois Hollande.
