Vice President Joe Biden will return to North Carolina Wednesday to welcome home troops to Iraq.
Biden, accompanied by his wife Jill Biden, will speak at a welcome home ceremony at Fort Bragg for the XVIII Airborne Corps back which is returning from Iraq, Rob Christensen reports.
This is the unit's second deployment to Iraq.
His visit will come week after Biden, along with Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack, visited Faison and Pikeville in Eastern North Carolina to discuss how the stimulus package would help rural America.
Back in February, President Obama traveled to Camp Lejuene to announce administration plans to gradually withdraw combat troops from Iraq. Now Biden is welcoming some of those troops home.
