Military Baby Boom

Thousands of Fort Campbell soldiers returned home from Iraq last year, and they wasted no time putting family first.

Now, a large number of female soldiers and soldier's wives are expecting, or have already delivered "little" ones.

This month doctors at a nearby hospital expect to deliver nearly one-hundred-seventy more babies than they usually deliver in a month.

Since thousands of soldiers will deploy overseas again this fall; doctors say they haven't seen the last of the baby boom.
