Some good news for families and soldiers of the 116th infantry brigade of Staunton.
The infantry brigade of 150 soldiers is coming home Thursday after being deployed for almost a year. They will arrive at the Richmond International Airport.
Unless weather causes delays because of travel conditions, the welcome home ceremony will take place at 3 p.m. at the Staunton Armory on Thornrose Avenue.
One family member explains how she feels now that her husband, a master sergeant, is coming home.
"I feel like a little girl on Christmas morning waiting to get to the tree. I'm so excited, so happy. Nine months is way too long," says Gail Taliaferro.
The unit has been stationed in Iraq since last June.
