Warm welcome home as "Task Force Punisher" returns to Virginia

Family, friends, fellow Soldiers, senior leaders in the Virginia National Guard and Gov. Bob McDonnell welcome home Soldiers from the Sandston-based 2nd Battalion, 224th Aviation Regiment, 91st Troop Command as they return to Virginia Dec. 10 after serving in Iraq since April 2011. The Soldiers are the main body of about 325 total Soldiers from the unit returning to Virginia. They returned to the United States Dec. 3 and 4 and conducted a number of different administrative and reintegration demobilization activities at Fort Hood, Texas to transition from active duty back to traditional National Guard status prior to returning to Virginia. The Soldiers officially began federal active duty Feb. 25. (Photo by Staff Sgt. Andrew H. Owen, Virginia Guard Public Affairs)
