Pictures of Troops Coming Home

Pictures of the Day: Air Force Reservists Come Home

The new plan for US withdrawal from Iraq would have US troops out within three years, with withdrawals set to begin next Summer if it's agreed upon. But, these troops had their big homecoming this week.

Troops from the Homestead Air Reserve Base returned to Miami after a six-month deployment to Iraq. The reservists' mission was to provide security at Kirkuk airbase. Judging from the pictures, their loved ones are so glad to have them back.

When it comes to assimilation, resistance is futile. (That's for the Star Trek fans)

It's so nice to see pictures like this, but it always makes me sad to think about the bumpy road ahead. Re-assimilating into your family can be tough.

Welcome home! Coosa, that's a great gesture by your parents.

My parents and a contingent of people from their retirement community go to a nearby airport and welcome the returning troops once a month. They just want to be there so the troops will know someone cares. Most of those who attend are WWII, Korean Police Action, and Vietnam War era Veterans as well as Patriotic Americans who support the Troops and want them to know how much their Service is appreciated. One more item to make you glad you're a US Citizen, proud to be an American.
