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.

They marked the end of what is expected to be the final Stryker brigade deployment out of Lewis-McChord to Iraq or Afghanistan.
