Family and friends gathered to welcome back Wisconsin Army National Guard troops returning from Afghanistan.

A ceremony was held at Volk Field in Camp Douglas on Friday as two plane loads carried nearly 200 soldiers back home to be reunited with their friends and families after a yearlong tour of duty.

About 200 more soldiers from the 127th infantry based in Appleton are expected back in state in the coming weeks.
