Spc. Coban Fife: "Good to be home. I never thought I'd miss the US so much until I left."

Heather Fife: "I've had butterflies all day just trying to get here. I'm so excited that he's home."

The Utah National Guard says these troops are home for good. More from the 211th will be returning home in a few weeks.
