"Fuel Warriors" Return

A few hundred of our neighbors are celebrating. The 110th Quartermaster Corps is home with friends and family after a year in Iraq.

They actually arrived ahead of schedule at Hunter Army Airfield this afternoon, with mothers, fathers, husbands and wives filling the bleachers, waiting patiently for those wonderful reunions.

"I was so nervous, my heart was racing, started sweating, just anxious to see my family," said Sgt. Connica McFadden.

The "Fuel Warriors" supplied fuel for everything from helicopters to Humvees at forward operating bases all around Iraq. This was their second deployment in the war on terrorism.
