Tickets to Barack Obama's inauguration are nearly impossible for most people to get.

But Sgt. 1st Class Leroy Williams, who's stationed in Fort Riley, has snagged five of the prize tickets. He'll take his three children to the Jan. 20 event, where they'll be met by his wife, who's traveling all the way from Iraq to be there.

Williams has spent the last five months working at Fort Riley while being a single parent to three children. His wife, Staff Sgt. Demetria Williams, serves as a medic in Iraq.

Sen. Pat Roberts of Kansas gave the tickets to the Williams' family after hearing about how the couple had both served their country.
