img_5271.jpgIn the dark of night 200 American soldiers, members of the Screaming Eagles of Fort Campbell, Kentucky and Clarksville, Tennessee,  returned home from their tour of duty in Iraq.They landed at approximately 1 a.m., but the late hour did not deter either spouses or children from gathering for long awaited reunions with their loved ones.

After hours and hours of travel, the  soldiers put feet to pavement on U.S. soil, but had to wait through formal ceremonies before the hugs, kisses, tears and smiles could happen.
