More troops returned from Iraq yesterday, as 70 members of the 549th Military Police Company came home. After spending 370 days overseas, they returned to Fort Stewart's Newman Gym, filled with waiting and cheering family members. Division commander Gen. William Webster made his official welcome very brief, then dismissed the troops to reunite with loved ones.
Soldiers say they're glad to be home and away from the uncertainty of their mission in Iraq. "The enemy kept changing," Sgt. Carl Moranski told us. "We trained here for one mission and sometimes it was that and sometimes something else."
Another 70 soldiers from the unit are scheduled to return today.
