Wars over for Washington state's Stryker Brigade solders for now

Their family reunion looked just like thousands of others at Lewis-McChord over the past dozen years of war. The base has sent tens of thousands of soldiers to Iraq and Afghanistan, with most deployments ending in a celebratory crush of travel-weary troops and ecstatic families. But Sunday’s homecoming flights for soldiers in the 4th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division were different. They marked the end of what is expected to be the final Stryker brigade deployment out of Lewis-McChord to Iraq or Afghanistan.
