135 Soldiers Return Home in Ft. Deposit After Year-Long Deployment
More than 100 soldiers are back home with their families. Today they marched into the Fort Deposit Municipal Complex marking the end of their year-long deployment in Afghanistan.
Families lined the streets waiting for their loved ones to return including little Kyley Mills. She knows she's getting a surprise.
"She had no idea he was coming home at all," her mother Megan Mills says.
Kyley says she was happy when he saw him. "I waved and said hey."
They've missed the Christmas holidays and birthdays, and for some, they've missed their child being born.
They were originally going to Kuwait.
The 781st Unit is the smallest company in the battalion.
