Wait ends for more south Georgia troops

April 21, 2006

Ft. Stewart- The extra long wait for south Georgia families anxious to see their soldiers ended just before midnight last night.

Family members cheered loudly for the soldiers with Bravo company who had been delayed several time from arriving at Ft. Stewart. Many said the wait was worth it as they hugged, kissed, and shared a few special moments with their families.

"Oh it's great, it's a great feeling. We've been gone a long time and it's a good thing to be home with the family," said Sgt. Michael Cobb, 48th Brigade.

Twelve planes carrying up to 200 soldiers with the 48th will continue to arrive over the next three weeks until the more than four thousand soldiers that make up the 48th are home.
