Soldiers from 1st Infantry Division return to Fort Riley from Iraq

August 6, 2010


— More soldiers from the Army's 1st Infantry Division have returned to Kansas from Iraq as the war mission enters a new phase.

Members of the division's 4th Infantry Brigade Combat Team arrived Thursday at Fort Riley to a reception from family and friends.

The soldiers come from various units within the 4th Brigade. They deployed to northern Iraq in August 2009.

The United States is reducing its forces to about 50,000 soldiers who will transition to a support mission for the Iraqi security forces.

Glad you made it home safely; RIP to all those who didn't. Our military is brave, skilled, efficient and being wasted on silly efforts to maintain the military industrial complex's interest in an endless wars. At least this one is winding down. Once again, welcome home and thanks for your service.

My cousin just returned home from Iraq to Fort Riley on Wednesday. My sister got some great shots of the homecoming. Lots of happy and relieved loved ones there to welcome them home.

Let's all have a cold one for those who returned and aren't 21 yet and can't have a drink themselves. Still something that I don't understand ? 18 and old enough to serve and get shot at but can't drink until you are 21...
