Soldiers, Families Reunite After Months-Long Deployment


Just in time for Veterans Day, more than 100 soldiers have returned to their loved ones' anxious arms Thursday morning.

The soldiers--from the 549th Quartermaster Company, 43rd Sustainment Brigade--are back on American soil after a seven-month deployment to Iraq. The soldiers had numerous duties while overseas, including helping to remove equipment as U.S. troops prepare to leave Iraq.

    I saw the police escorted motorcade, on my way to work, this morning. It brought tears of joy to my eyes knowing that some of our troops have come home! I continue to pray that the rest of them will soon follow. THANK YOU FOR A JOB WELL DONE! GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL OF OUR SERVICE MEN AND WOMEN!
