More than 100 soldiers return home to Fort Campbell

Posted: Updated:
FORT CAMPBELL, KY (WSMV) -

There were many happy reunions at Fort Campbell on Friday as 164 soldiers arrived home safely after a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

It was the latest in a series of homecomings at the post this week as the U.S. Army continues its drawdown in Afghanistan.

They are members of the First Brigade Combat Team of the 101st Airborne Division, and while it wasn't the first deployment for many of the soldiers, they say it never gets old and never feels any less special to see smiling faces back home.

Another unit of the First Brigade Combat Team is due home on Sunday morning.
