Troops return from deployment

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Soldiers based at Hunter Army Airfield are now back at home. A plane carrying Task Force Viper, 1-3 Attack Aviation Battalion with the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade, landed Monday night. Friends and family members waited for their special soldier and the chance to hold them tightly once again.

"This one would be the hardest one because he would ask for his dad and everything like that. I didn't know how to explain it to him that he is okay and he is coming home soon. That was the hardest part," said Leilani Malave, military spouse.

Another homecoming was scheduled for 10 p.m. Monday at Fort Stewart's Cottrell Field for the 3rd Infantry Division's Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion.
