FT. CAMPBELL, Ky. – More than 100 soldiers with the 101st Airborne Air Assault 1st Brigade Combat Team returned home from Afghanistan Monday morning.
The 130 soldiers spent the last year in the Kunar Province.
Their plane touched down at Ft. Campbell shortly after 8 a.m., just hours after the world learned of Osama bin Laden's death.
In a statement late Sunday, President Obama said the glowering mastermind behind the September 11, 2001 terror attacks was killed in a firefight at a compound north of Pakistan's capital.
"Justice has been done," the president said.
Former President George W. Bush, who was in office on the day of the attacks, issued a written statement hailing bin Laden's death as a momentous achievement.
"The fight against terror goes on, but tonight America has sent an unmistakable message: No matter how long it takes, justice will be done," the statement read.
Very little was said about bin Laden as the troops returned home, although many were quick to point out that the fight isn't over.
"The fight isn't done yet," George Flynn, a veteran of both the wars in Korea and Vietnam told Nashville's News 2 as he waited for has grandson to arrive.
"There's so much hate in there for us," he continued. "They hate our life, the system of living. You know, it's not over, so we've got to be vigilant."
Graham LePorte agreed with his grandfather.
"We found out on our second stop in Gander, Canada so that was pretty nice but for us but its one of those things, [you] still got to keep fighting the fight no matter what," he said of learning of Osama's death.
Others, like Sylvia Andrews, who has four children in the armed services, told Nashville's News 2 she is ready for the war to be over.
"I hope that we don't have to keep going back over there, because I'd like to see them all come home...everybody," she said.
Andrew's daughter, Cierra Mudd, was unaware bin Laden had been killed.
After hearing the news, she said, "I think it's really going to build up the morale here to know that we've done our job and we've done our part and its over. It's going to be over soon."
The troops who arrived home Monday are among six groups scheduled to return to Ft. Campbell this week.
