EL PASO- More families have been reunited with their soldiers just in time for the holidays this year.
With spouses and children waiting, 200 soldiers returned from Iraq this morning in time for the holidays. The unit was deployed in August and was prepared to stay for 12 months until president Obama called troops home from Iraq by the end of the year. Their mission was to train the Iraqi army. Now, eight months sooner than expected, they get to relax and celebrate with their families.
