Soldiers Return Home From Iraq

JANUARY 21, 2006 -- After spending nearly a year in Iraq, a group of 130 soldiers based out of Fort Bragg are getting a big welcome home.

The 18th Airborne Corps led by Lt. Gen. John Vines returned from their mission in Iraq. They arrived at the military base Saturday afternoon.

The soldiers were deployed to Iraq last February to help implement a democratically elected government in Iraq.

Their homecoming is part of a wide scale troop reduction out of Iraq.
