Two Bronx soldiers return home from Iraq
Two Bronx Army reservists are readjusting to life back home after serving 11 months in Iraq.
Sergeants Rafael Rodriguez and Janice Santiago arrived in Kuwait on Thanksgiving Day. Their company supported the army's third infantry division during its push into Baghdad. They took hundreds of pictures of what they saw, including women uncovering their faces in public for the first time in years. They say the experience gave them a greater appreciation of the quality of life in The Bronx.
They say it was hard to leave the many friends they made in Iraq but they were ready to come home to their families.
