Welcome Home Marines!!

There were plenty of smiles and tears of happiness at MCAS Cherry Point Wednesday as Marines returned home from Iraq.

242 Marines returned from a six month deployment in Iraq.

As the buses rolled in hundreds of family members and friends cheered, held up their welcome home signs and then searched for their loved one as they got off the bus.

We talked to one woman who just had a son two months before her husband left for Iraq.

She said she had been anticipating this day for a while and was thrilled it had finally come.

The Marines who returned are from the Marine Wing Support Squadron 271.
