Dozens of Kentucky troops returning from Iraq

Dozens of Kentucky National Guard soldiers will be returning home from Iraq this week.

A welcome home ceremony will be held in Louisville Wednesday for nearly 50 members of the 198th M.P. Battalion. They are among 1,300 Kentucky National Guard soldiers deployed to Iraq this summer, as part of "Operation New Dawn."

President Obama has ordered all American soldiers out of Iraq by the end of the year.
