Hundreds of family members from the Janesville area reconnecting with their loved ones at Volk Field in Madison this morning.

Officials tell Janesville Gazette reporter Frank Schultz says excited family members were waiting on a rope line holding signs in the cold as they waited for their loved ones to get off the plane.

A news release from the Wisconsin National Guard states the soldiers have been in Iraq the past eight months and are part of the 132nd Brigade Support Battalion of the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

The soldiers will spend time with their families. Then they'll be bused to Fort McCoy for five days of demobilization before returning to Janesville.
