FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana’s NewsCenter) -- After more than a 24 hour delay more than 30 members of the 122nd will soon be hugging and kissing their loved ones.

A small group returned a short time ago with the rest later this evening.

It was especially important for at least two soldiers who held their newborn children for the first time.

The men and women have been stationed in Iraq for the last six months where they provided security and protection at the Baghdad International Airport.
