About 650 Soldiers Return

About 650 soldiers are safe at home tonight. Over the last two days, more than 1,000 troops came home from Operation Iraqi Freedom and waiting to greet them were family and friends. These are the soldiers in the 603rd Aviation Support Battalion. Others are from the Apache and Blackhawk battalions. In Iraq they were responsible for numerous combat missions and providing air support for ground forces.

More are expected to return later on this week.
