CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The final two welcome home ceremonies for the 2nd Brigade Combat Team took place in Cedar Rapids and Boone on Saturday, reuniting about 165 soldiers with their families.

After these two events, approximately 2,470 Iowa soldiers will have returned to the state.  The remaining soldiers of the approximately 2,900 deployed last year are members of the Nebraska National Guard, are getting treatment for injuries or illness, were killed in action or are still on duty to out-process their units.
