Over 100 Soldiers Return

There was an emotional reunion on Hunter Army Airfield Saturday morning as more than 100 soldiers from the 512th Quartermaster Company came home.

The unit deployed January 12, 2005, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, supporting coalition forces serving throughout Iraq. They came back with good news. While in Iraq, the 512th did not sustain a single casualty, so everybody is home safe.

"It's great to be back, great to be back," said one soldier told us. "Still got guys over there with the Third ID, so families who aren't here today, they'll be here. And it's all worth it."

Fifty soldiers from Hunter Army Airfield's 202nd Quartermaster Detachment, 260th Quartermaster Battalion are scheduled to be the next to come home.
