Tammy Jarrells and her daughter Lilly Wait were very excited to see her fiancee PFC Corey Peters along with his mother Kathy Peters. Also cousins Jamie Henton and Lisa Jersild were there as well. They all drove in from Key West, FL.

Ashley Reynolds and her family were also on hand to welcome home Jeff Hutchinson.

Once inside the hanger Col. Pete Bosse welcomed everyone home in a short speech to the soldiers. Afterwards everyone was allowed 15 minutes of family time before heading back to their unit to turn in their gear.

If you wish to attend a Welcome Home Ceremony, check the flight schedules online, as times are subject to change at any time. When arriving to Fort Campbell, enter via Gate 7; if you don’t have installation stickers on your vehicle, you will be required to get a visitor pass. From there just follow the signs to the ceremony parking. Waiting buses transport the Family members safely to the hanger.
