The final large group of soldiers with Oklahoma's 45th Infantry Brigade have made their way back home to the Sooner State.

Nearly 150 soldiers arrived at Will Rogers Air National Guard Base Saturday. A homecoming ceremony was held at 10 a.m.

Another group of 200 soldiers returned to Oklahoma on Thursday. They were welcomed home with lots of cheering, hugs and kisses.

The returning soldiers are among the nearly 3,000 who deployed to Afghanistan and Kuwait last summer.
