Story by Sgt. Sinthia Rosario
FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. — Soldiers assigned to the 632nd Movement Control Team, 129th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), arrive April 11 at Fort Campbell, Ky., from their deployment in Afghanistan.
After months being away from their families, the soldiers finally get to see their loved ones. A welcome home ceremony was held for the soldiers and upon their arrival family members and friends greeted the soldiers with a grand applause, whistles and shouts.
Tears, laughter, hugs and kisses were expressed during their homecoming and no one felt shame in shedding tears. It was all about having their loved ones return safe and sound and into their arms again.
As he hugged his two little ones, Sgt. James D. Jackson a transportation coordinator with 632nd MCT said, “This is great, this is the best part of coming home, seeing my two kids.”
The separation due to the deployment was a challenge families faced especially, those with children.
“It’s been a long nine months for me and the kids,” said Sgt. 1st Class Charles E. Saulter, a parachute rigger supervisor with 2nd Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group (Airborne). “We made it, we survived it, it’s been challenging and we missed her very much. I can’t stop smiling, I’ve been waiting for this day and it’s finally here.”
