Families and friends rushed Cooper Field early Monday to embrace their loved ones who had just returned from a nine-month deployment in the Middle East.

Greywolf troopers begin returning home


Nearly 400 troopers from the 1st Cavalry Division's 3rd Brigade Combat Team were welcomed home from their deployment this week on Cooper Field at Fort Hood.

The Greywolf Brigade is wrapping up its nine-month deployment in support of Operation Spartan Shield and Operation Inherent Resolve, and the remainder of the brigade will return home to the Great Place in the days ahead.

Pfc. Christopher Harris, a unit supply specialist assigned to Company A, 2nd Battalion, 7th Cavalry Regiment, spent the majority of his time at Camp Buehring in Kuwait. He was excited to see his new son, Christopher Harris III, for the first time since he was born in May.

"It feels excellent," Harris said. "Everything is just excellent."

His wife, Charnece, was both smiling and crying at the same time after the ceremony.

"Words cannot even describe it," she said, wiping away tears.
