Fort Knox Soldiers Reunite with Families After Tour in Afghanistan
Nearly 200 Ft. Knox soldiers are back home and reunited with their families following a nine-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.
The Courier-Journal reported on the homecoming for soldiers from the 3rd Sustainment Command, who were stationed at an airfield in Kandahar.
This was the first deployment for some of the soldiers, while for others it was their fourth of fifth deployment overseas since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
