Welcome home: Fort Hood soldiers returning from deployment to South Korea

The first few hundred soldiers of about 4,000 troops from Fort Hood’s 3rd Armored Brigade Combat Team, 1st Cavalry Division, are beginning to return home after a deployment to South Korea.

The 3rd Brigade “Greywolf” deployed to South Korea in July for a nine-month rotation.

At least two flights of troops already have returned to Fort Hood, and more are expected throughout the rest of the month.

The troops performed extensive training during the mission, and were there as a reaction force in case combat broke out on the Korean peninsula.
