(KMOV) -- More than 100 troops arrived at the Army Reserve Center in Granite City, Illinois Wednesday morning. 
 
Families of soldiers with the 739th Engineering Company waited for hours to welcome the troops home.
 
Shortly before 10am three buses full of returning reservists pulled up to cheers of flag-waving family members and people from the area who just showed up to salute them.
 
The troops had been setting up and taking down bridges all over Iraq since last December.
