Soldiers return from 10-month tour in Iraq

BROOKLYN - After 10 months in Iraq, 26 soldiers of the New York Army National Guard?s 37th Finance Division have returned home.

The soldiers stepped off a bus in Murray Hill in Manhattan to a crowd of family and friends.

Their job in Iraq was to ensure that their fellow soldiers were paid and had access to their money.

Before being sent home with family, they were given one last debriefing by their commander on the hardships of adjusting back to civilian life, but the commander says that he doesn?t think these soldiers will have many issues.
