      The remains of Army Specialist Kevin Cardoza are back on American soil.

      According to America's Last Patrol, his body was flown to Delaware this morning.

      Cardoza's family members were there to receive his body.

      They are working on bringing him back to the Rio Grande Valley for funeral services.

      The 19-year-old from Mercedes died Saturday in Afghanistan.

      Four other American soldiers died alongside him, after a roadside bomb went off.
