As soldiers stepped off the plane, they made way  past the wounded soldiers who were on hand to welcome them home.Once everyone dropped their gear, they formed up to march inside hanger 3 for the official Welcome Home Ceremony. Once the hanger doors opened, soldiers marched in while the band played and the crowd cheered.
