Troops from the 48th brigade combat team are one step closer to being back in the arms of their families.
Wednesday night the troops' plane made a stop at Hunter Army Airfield base near Savannah, Georgia.
The 400 member brigade is Georgia’s largest National Guard unit, and is now heading to Hinesville, where they will reunite with their families.
Governor Sonny Perdue was waiting and shook the hand of each soldier welcoming them home.
The troops have spent the past year in Iraq.
All of the units in the 48th are expected to be back in the U.S. by mid-May.
