Troops back for Thanksgiving

Fort Sill_45 soldiers were welcomed back from overseas Thursday night, just in time for Thanksgiving. The soldiers are part of the Nebraska National Guard, assigned to a Medical Evacuation Battalion.

   Sergeant Travis Garrett said he couldn't wait to get back to his wife and two kids in Lincoln. "Feels great, words can't express it...hasn't really sunk in yet. I'm suspecting in about a month or so, i'll just wake up and go, 'holy crap', I'm at home," Sergeant Garrett said.

  Sergeant Garrett was one of several soldiers who took advantage of the cellphones and free minutes recently donated by AT&T. The company wanted the soldiers to be able to connect with family and friends who might not be able to make such a long trip for the homecoming ceremony.
