Thomasville- Hundreds of south Georgia soldiers remain in Iraq on the third anniversary of the war. For their families left behind in south Georgia feelings are mixed.

When Judy Young's husband Staff Sergeant Johnny Young with the 1148th Transportation Division was in Iraq she just wanted him home. Now that he's back, she's proud of his service, but questions why we're still there.

"Now that he's home I can think a little clearer, you know when he was over there a was selfish I just wanted my husband, my father I wanted him home," said Judy Young, Soldier Wife.

About 100 members of Georgia's 48th Brigade returned to Fort Stewart early Monday morning. The remaining 3,000 plus soldiers will come home over the next 90 days.
