More Arkansas Soldiers Celebrate Homecoming

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Another homecoming in Little Rock after a year-long deployment.

Arkansas soldiers were greeted with applause, cheers and tears yesterday, as 27 members of the 449th Service Aviation Battalion touched down at the Little Rock National Airport just after noon.

Robert and Cheri Feltcher welcomed home their son, Staff Sergeant Michael Feltcher.  Darla and Jerry Young greeted son Kyle Young.  The father retired in March from the same unit.  Sergeant Kyle Young says the homecoming was probably the most exciting day of his life.  The Arkansas National Guard says the next group of soldiers can be expected home in a few weeks.
