Fort Campbell unit returns for Easter Sunday

FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) -- A small group of Fort Campbell soldiers who have been helping in the drawdown of troops from Iraq returned home in time for Easter.

The 31 soldiers from the 101st Human Resources Company, based at the Army installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, arrived home Sunday after nine months in Kuwait.

The Leaf-Chronicle reports that 101st Sustainment Brigade commander Col. Michael P. Peterman said all the troops who left Iraq last year were touched by the small unit.

Peterman thanked the soldiers and their families for their service over the last nine months.
