Fort Stewart soldiers welcomed home Thursday

FORT STEWART (WTOC) - A ceremony at Fort Stewart Thursday welcoming back 3rd Infantry Division soldiers stationed in Eastern Afghanistan.

The unit trained, advised and assisted army corps and police unites of Afghan soldiers and law enforcement in the region.

WTOC was lucky enough to catch the heart-warming homecomings on camera and chat with the soldiers.

"It's a feeling that I just can't explain. It's awesome. It's extremely awesome. I've been away from my kids for so long and it's so exciting to finally be home for good this time," said SCF Verna Jones, returned from deployment.

The soldiers are coming back after a year-long deployment.
