Iowa soldiers return home

Posted:

JOHNSTON (KWWL) - Nearly two-dozen Iowa Army National Guard soldiers got to do something they've been waiting for - see their families again.  20 soldiers were greeted by family and friends at a homecoming Saturday afternoon in Johnston.  The soldiers represent a number of units across Iowa, including Des Moines, Boone and Iowa City.  The soldiers departed last August.  For the past year they have been in afghanistan helping train the Afghan national army.
