Groton (WTNH)_ A plane landed in Connecticut today carrying the answers to the prayers of more than a dozen families.
"You're very nervous when somebody goes off to Iraq and scared to death and you pray a lot to bring them back safely," said Sylvia Morgan, grandmother of soldier.
Fifteen members of the 1109th AVCRAD spent the past year fixing helicopters in Iraq and Kuwait. Meanwhile their families have been riding an emotional roller coaster.
"Sadness. Happiness when our son was born, and we miss him horribly," said Kate Morgan, wife of soldier.........
