We all love to hear when our Men and Women fighting for our freedom overseas return home!  Welcome back to our real heroes of the 256th!  Just in time for the holiday.  Imagine you didn't know where your family member was during a family time of the year...yeah that thought isn't so great is it?

Families were cheering, hugging, and kissing today. All of them excited to see their loved ones from the 256th Brigade return home.

About 23 members of the Brigade arrived at the Infantry Armory in Breaux Bridge. Some soldiers had no specific plans, others had one thing in mind.

"I've had a year's worth of planning, so no plans for me," said Michael Langely, SST of the 256th Brigade.
