Everyone is back – WELCOME home soldiers!

The final planeload of Battle Company soldiers returned to Joint Base Lewis-McChord in the early morning hours of Sunday, Dec. 8, 2012.

The final moment of their deployment had actually arrived and was celebrated by the family of Jeff and Storm Schoonover. Enjoy their photos:

First there’s the waiting … and waiting … her T-shirt says it all

FINALLY in the crowd, Storm Funston-Schoonover and Jeff Scott Schoonover and their family connect.

Schoonover family is back together again – notice smiles

The same wide smiles happened about a week earlier when a previous group of Battle Company soldiers came home …
