Patriot Guard escorts returning guard unit to Spearfish


After serving a year in Afghanistan, members of the 842nd Engineer Company returned to a warm welcome home Thursday.

Hugs and handshakes greeted the soldiers as they stepped off the plane from Fort Bliss, Texas.

The 160-member unit just finished its demobilization requirements, after the year-long deployment.

The warm welcome by fellow guard members, the Patriot Guard, and the Militiamen was followed by a motorcycle escort to Spearfish for a family picnic, deactivation ceremony and community parades.
