Troops originally trained in Camp Atterbury have been coming home from Iraq.

As Americans mark the end of the U.S. war in Iraq, Camp Atterbury is playing a key role in welcoming those troops home. But the base is also preparing contract civilians to head to Iraq in the wake of the military departure.

Camp Atterbury spokesperson Captain Jessica Halladay says the facility has been helping a steady stream of U.S. military both prepare for active duty time overseas, and, return home. She says troops have been coming to Camp Atterbury from Iraq since October, while the base prepares civilians to, in some cases, head out to take their place.

Halladay says right now soldiers based in Kentucky are at Camp Atterbury, preparing for their transitions back to work and family life.  She says all of those soldiers are expected to be home in time for the holidays.
