MADISON (WKOW) -- Some local soldiers come home for the holidays.
Members of the 467th Army Medical Detachment say they appreciate the holiday more this year. The soldiers are back after experiencing war in Afghanistan and suffering losses during the Fort Hood shooting.
They say they're always aware of their fallen comrades and their counterparts still fighting overseas.
"i wish them a safe return, i wish them the merriest christmas possible, i know it's not a perfect situation, but they will be home next year to celebrate with their families and friends," Maj. Laura Suttinger said.
Since Sept. 11 every unit in the Wisconsin National Guard has deployed soldiers and airmen overseas.
