(KSL News) Another happy homecoming tonight at Salt Lake International for some Utah soldiers.

Five Utahns who serve in the Army Reserves returned home after 15 months in northern Iraq. The reservists had the duty of delivering the mail in and around Mosul. They say getting a letter from home is a huge morale booster for troops, but nothing like coming home.

Spc. Patrick Peery said, "It was great, haven't seen them for a while. It's good to be home, to be surrounded by loved ones."

It's a special homecoming for the Peerys. They were married just three months before Patrick left for Iraq.
