Soldiers back in The Bronx for the holidays

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.

President Barack Obama announced earlier this month that after nearly nine years, the war in Iraq was over and the U.S. troops remaining overseas would all be coming home.
