Members of the 198th Military Police Battalion were welcomed back in a Wednesday morning ceremony at the Beuchel Army National Guard Armory.
Their return is part of the final drawdown of troops ordered by President Obama last month. Sergeant Robert Ayers says it was welcome news.
“It was a positive attitude…it’s been a constant battle over there–war—and it’s a great feeling to know that all the soldiers are coming home,” Ayers said.
About 1,400 Kentucky National Guard members are expected to return stateside in the coming months.
