LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Over 100 Fort Knox soldiers are spending their first day home with their families.
They returned to the post Tuesday night. Family and friends were on-hand to welcome the 120 soldiers. They've spent the last nine months in Afghanistan helping security forces, government and police transition to taking over.
The unit will continue to send soldiers home in small groups through May, with the majority of the brigade returning before March 2014.
