Sill Soldiers Welcomed Home

FORT SILL_Hundreds packed into the Rinehart Fitness Center on Fort Sill Saturday night to welcome home some of our nation's heroes.


It was the second of three groups of soldiers with the 2nd Battalion, 18th Field Artillery to be welcomed home this week.

The troops have been deployed to the United Arab Emirates for the last nine months, and it was all smiles and happy tears when the soldiers were reunited with their families.

"Seeing all the soldiers and them reconnect with their families is a great experience. And the Lawton community was great in all they did. It was a great show. It's great to be back, " said Lieutenant Michael Green.

"Mother's Day is a day early. To have Michael home and our whole family here and safe. Just God Bless Michael, and God Bless everybody here at Fort Sill, " said Maureen Green.

The final group of 40 soldiers from their Battalion will be welcomed home Sunday at 7 p-m at the Rinehart Fitness Center.
