Entire Second Brigade Home

The last soldiers from the Second Brigade of the Third Infantry Division are finally back home. The last group arrived late last night at Fort Stewart.

The A Company, Third Battalion, Seventh Infantry Regiment was on the next-to-last flight carrying the brigade home. Another group of 300 soldiers arrived about 11pm last night, first landing at Hunter Army Airfield, then to Fort Stewart where the soldiers were reunited with family and friends.

Most of these Third ID soldiers have been in Iraq for nine months or more. A total of more than 1,000 soldiers arrived on separate flights yesterday and late last night.
