Eighty-seven National Guardsmen from Grand Ledge returned home Monday morning after a 10 month deployment in Iraq.
Company "F" arrived by bus to meet hundreds of friends and family members. The group did maintenance support work on aircraft in Northern Iraq. They have been gone almost a year.
The unit was lucky overseas. They returned home without any casualties. And of course, they received a hero's welcome from family and friends.
Some of the company is still overseas; they are expected home before Christmas.
