THE BRONX - A group of local soldiers stationed in Iraq stepped off a bus at Fort Totten today, just in time to spend the holidays at home.

The eight members of the 142nd Transportation Company were deployed for more than a year. All agree it's going to be a great Christmas with their families this year.
