About 300 family and friends of members of the Wisconsin National Guard's 1158th Transportation Company from Beloit gathered at Volk Field Wednesday to welcome their loved ones home from Iraq.


Among them, Catrina Bennett, who's also the Family Readiness Coordinator for the unit. Bennett hasn't seen her husband since last February. Bennett describes the experience as having a huge weight lifted off their shoulders. She says it's been a long wait.


Loved ones only had about two hours to share with the returning soldiers before they proceeded on to Fort McCoy.
