More soldiers welcomed home at Fort Stewart

Posted: Updated:

Fort Stewart welcomed home more than 100 soldiers from Afghanistan Saturday morning.

Military families have been through this time and time again, and each time is one for happy tears.

Allie Schwartz was waiting for her high school sweetheart and fiance Eric Thomas, just like she waited for her father to return home to Fort Stewart 10 years ago. Schwartz has spent the past year planning a wedding by herself.

"He came to visit me before he left for Afghanistan, asked me to marry him, then he left like 10 days later." said Schwartz.

"After a year of being gone, it just means everything to me to have my family here." said Thomas.

April 6 is the couple's big day.
