The first units arrived back in
the United States just after 1:30 this
morning.

A News 7 crew sent the first
photos in a short time ago.

All 630 soldiers from these
battallions of the 29th Infantry

half in Afghanistan.

The returning soldiers get to
spend the weekend at home before coming
back to base for debriefing.

They should be home for good by
