Home is the soldier

From the Washington Post

FORT STEWART, Ga. - The 3rd Infantry Division soldiers who stormed Baghdad flew home Monday, completing a nine-month deployment to the Persian Gulf.

The last of the division's 2nd Brigade Combat Team landed at Hunter Army Airfield to turn in their weapons and the rest of their combat gear before being reunited with their families.

Only the division's 1st Brigade remains in Iraq, and it is scheduled to begin heading home in the next few weeks.

This is good to hear. 3rd Division has been over there the longest, and there have been stories floating around that they would be stuck in Iraq indefinitely...
