Wisconsin soldiers welcomed home


An emotional reunion for some Wisconsin Army National Guard soldiers as they were welcomed home.

Twenty-eight National Guard soldiers were welcomed back to Wisconsin at a ceremony in Madison Thursday.

The soldiers returned from an 11-month deployment to Kuwait and Jordan.

One family from Edgar is happy to be back together once again.

"I told them that I would cook tonight. I'm tired of eating on the road and I'm going to cook tonight and we're going to make something homemade," said Lt. Colonel Randall Myszka.

"We just want to thank everyone for their prayers, for their texts, for their emails, the phone calls, the cards, it just meant a lot," said Myszka's wife, Patty.

The soldiers arrived on U.S. soil, landing at Fort Hood, on January 13.
