Troops welcomed home after serving over a year in Iraq

Lawton/Fort Sill- Eleven Fort Sill soldiers are back in Oklahoma  after spending more than a year serving their country in Iraq.  Members of the 1st Battalion, 14th Field Artillery were reunited with their friends and family in a ceremony Monday evening on post.

One soldier came back to see and hold his child for the first time. His daughter was born during his deployment in Iraq.

Another soldier, Specialist Jeff Zimmerman, told 7 News he is grateful to all those who sent him letters through the Adopt-A-Soldier Now program.

"I'd like to thank them for their support. I know there's plenty more soldiers over there and more going back. So keep it up, it definitely helps morale and definitely puts a smile on your face," Zimmerman said.
