Nearly 300 troops are enjoying their first night home in nearly a year.

They arrived early Saturday night in one of the largest groups to return home so far.

About 170 from the 3rd Brigade Combat Team were at the homecoming. The rest that landed prior headed back to their hometowns earlier in the day.

Some soldiers say being home felt too good to be true. They say they've experienced so many different emotions being away from about a year. Most of all, they missed being away from their families.

So far, 44hundred soldiers are already home from Iraq. Fifty-six hundred more troops will be home by April.
