Three ceremonies are scheduled to return from Iraq. One Battalion already returned around 3:00 Monday afternoon. Another is scheduled for 1:25 and the third around 4:00a.m. Tuesday.
Family members cheered as the soldiers filed into a Fort Riley building. After a short ceremony the soldiers were reunited with the family and friends who had gathered for their return. For PFC Christopher Ramos, it was the first time he had seen his daughter since her birth ten months ago.
Tears of joy ran down the cheeks of several people present as they embraced their loved ones who have been gone for what felt like an eternity.
