Vanguard soldiers return home

HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) - It was an emotional return home for more Vanguard soldiers and their families Friday at Fort Stewart.

Another group of soldiers with the Fourth Infantry Brigade Combat Team was back in the arms of loved ones after a yearlong deployment in Iraq.

Soldiers say that year can feel like a lifetime when they are away from their family. They're proud to have volunteered to serve, but it sure is great to see these smiling faces.

Still more Vanguard Brigade soldiers are expected back later Friday night.
