About 200 members of the Oklahoma National Guard returned from Iraq Monday morning.

A welcome-home ceremony was held Monday morning at Fort Sill for the members of the Okmulgee-based 120th Engineer Battalion. About 270 troops from the unit returned home earlier this month to a brief, emotional ceremony at Fort Sill.

Now that the rest of the 120th has returned home, only 210 Oklahoma Army and Air National Guardsmen will remain overseas.
