200 Arkansas Army National Guard Troops return

Fort Sill _ About 200 members of the Arkansas Army National Guard were welcomed home this morning during a ceremony at Fort Sill.

The returning soldiers are members of the 2nd Battalion, 142nd Field Artillery.  They were honored during a homecoming ceremony at Fort Sill's Rinehart Physical Fitness Center.

The event was a triple thrill for Yvonne Drost of Fayetteville, Arkansas, who welcomed home her husband, Captain Eric Drost, his son Chris Drost of Rogers, Arkansas, and stepson Aaron McNeil of Conway, Arkansas.  The soldiers now will be processed at Fort Sill for the next few days before returning to their families.
