Families Reunited as Soldiers Return Home

Posted: Updated:
MOBILE, Alabama - Nearly 200 military members had a Valentine's Day homecoming Friday. Members of the 226th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade returned from a nine month deployment in Afghanistan.

Fort Whiting was waiting for the soldiers to come back home, but their return was a little bit delayed. Their bus broke down on the way from Fort Hood Texas. They were two hours a late but once they were back no one really seemed to mind.

During their deployment, the Soldiers of the 226th provided base management operations for five base camps in Kabul, police advisory training for police districts of Kabul, quick reactionary force Soldiers for all of Kabul and also worked on projects that provided capital improvements to Kabul.
