About 300 paratroopers are now back on American soil after a year in southern Afghanistan.

A welcome home ceremony included the 82nd Airborne Division's approximately 200 paratroopers from the Division Headquarters and 100 paratroopers from 4th Brigade Combat Team, including Commanding General Maj. Gen. Jim Huggins and Division Command Sgt. Maj. Bryant Lambert.  

Additionally, members of the Golden Brigade marched alongside the paratroopers for their official welcome home ceremony they never received upon returning from Vietnam.
