FORT HOOD — For the Myers family, Thanksgiving will be today.

Jodi Myers decided to wait until after her husband, Spc. Clifton Myers, arrived home from his deployment to Iraq with Special Troops Battalion, 4th Sustainment Brigade, 13th Sustainment Command, to host about 20 members of their family for the holiday.

"We both love family," said Jodi Myers, while waiting for her husband to arrive during a redeployment ceremony at Abrams Physical Fitness Center Monday morning.

Clifton Myers was one of more than 100 soldiers from the sustainment brigade to return to Fort Hood earlier than expected.

"I'm just happy being home," he said after receiving a warm welcome from his family. "I have a brand new house I've never even seen before."
