Some Ground Troops, Including East Texan, Say They're Coming Home

Another sign that major combat operations are ending in Iraq: an East Texan, stationed in Iraq, says he'll be out by the end of the month.

We've been bringing you the story of  Lt. Colonel John Thomson, assigned to the Fourth Infantry Division in Iraq. Since arriving, he's been very close to Baghdad, even inside some of Saddam Hussein's presidential palaces.

He's been e-mailing these pictures to his wife, Holly, down at Fort Hood.   But now, the great news that he should be back in the States by June 1st. We'll keep you posted on his progress.
