Refugee, now US soldier returns home

First Lt. Yllka Cana, deployed with the 218th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade as a military intelligence officer, can't help but smile as she introduces her elementary school teacher to Maj. Chip Sturgis, a senior officer in the brigade. Cana and her five siblings were born in Kosovo, but relocated to the U.S. during the conflict in 1999. For Cana, returning to Kosovo was a hard decision, but one that she now wishes she had made sooner. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Angela Parady, 121st Public Affairs Detachment.)
