Gainesville, Florida -- 091102 -- Army reservist Gabriel Lewis of Wellborn, Florida, hugs two of his five sons, Austin Lewis, left, 4, and Tristan Lewis, 2, when the family was reunited Wednesday at the Army Reserve Center. About 50 members of the 257th Transportation Battalion, Gainesville's only Army Reserve Unit, returned home from Fort Eustis after being called to serve in the wake of Sept. 11, 2001. "Us arriving softens the blow (of the 9/11/01 anniversary). It's easier on the kids," Lewis said.                                       .CONTACT Carla Hotvedt at SILVER IMAGE® Photo Agency and Weddings 352.373-5771 or
