Tears of joy, hugs, and laughter when close to 100 Army Reserve soldiers from Jackson returned from Iraq late Wednesday night. Members of the 303rd Military Police Company were all smiles when they came into town just before midnight.
The soldiers were deployed in September of last year.
Two members of their unit died in Iraq, and several others were injured.
The City of Jackson rolled out the welcome mat for the soldiers. Members of the community lined the streets for a parade to welcome the soldiers home.
The soldiers say they're glad to be home, and plan to relax during the holidays with their families.
