Biden Returning To State To Welcome Troops Home

Vice President Joe Biden is returning to North Carolina, this time to welcome home troops from Iraq.

Biden and his wife, Jill, will travel to Fort Bragg on Wednesday to welcome home the 18th Airborne Corps. He will speak at a ceremony.

The 18th Airborne Corps spent more than a year in charge of the Multi-National Force in Iraq. It completed that work on Saturday and passed along the command to I Corps of Fort Lewis, Wash. Biden's son, Beau, is serving in Iraq with the Delaware Army National Guard.

The vice president also visited North Carolina last week, touring rural Faison and Pikeville to tout the $787 billion federal stimulus package.
