Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A huge welcome home to the crew of the USS San Francisco.

Hundreds of eager family members gathered for the grand return and belated Fourth of July celebrations.

The Los Angeles-class submarine has been gone for six months.

"It's hard to explain the emotions coming around. When we were coming down the channel, see the pier with all the families waiting on it… just an overwhelming feeling of pride for everything we've been doing and it feels good to be home," a crew member said.

The submarine deployed in support of the chief of naval operations' maritime strategy. Its tasks included maritime security and sea control.
