US soldiers welcomed home from Iraq

As US operations in Iraq draw to a close, military families are being reunited as troops return home.

    As the US winds down its controversial war in Iraq, the last remaining troops are due home by the end of the year.

    After travelling thousands of kilometres home, soldiers look forward to seeing their families and friends again, and none more so than those of the First Calvary from Fort Hood in Texas - the country’s largest army base.
