Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It was a great day for dozens of Nevada military families.
More than 100 men and women came home from Afghanistan on Friday.
The soldiers are with the Nevada Army Guard's 593rd Transportation Company. They have been in Afghanistan for the last 11 months.
Three-month-old Adrienne met her father for the first time and he is more than ready to make up for lost time.
The drivers, maintainers and recovery specialists have been working around Kabul, transporting supplies and personnel.
Nevada has done its part in the war in Afghanistan. More than 2,500 Army guard soldiers have been deployed since 2001.
But, with this homecoming, our state's service is winding up. Only one other Nevada Army Guard unit is abroad, a medical evacuation unit.
