Ft. Campbell-based soldiers return from Afghanistan

Posted: Updated:
FORT CAMPBELL, KY (WSMV) -

About 260 soldiers from the 3rd brigade combat team are home in the United States after serving in Afghanistan for seven months.

This marks the third time in the last few months that members of the Fort Campbell-based "Rakkasans" brigade have returned early.

Around 400 soldiers have come home, and that's expected to continue until the U.S. pulls out of Afghanistan and hands over full control to Afghan forces by 2014.
