Two hundred paratroopers from the 82nd Airborne Division returned home from duty in the Middle East this week but without the normal celebration due to COVID 19.

The Fort Bragg homecoming celebrations used to be packed with emotional families waving flags and signs as troops would parade into Green Ramp.

This time, the returning heroes were moved to a bus after leaving the plane, then transitioned into their quarantine location.

The troops will get a 14-day quarantine, go back to work for a little out briefing – and then finally get some block leave before getting back to work to train for the next upcoming mission.
