More Troops Return Home

The troops are members of the 571st Medical Company

Unfortunately, not everyone in the troop is returning home.

In May, Chief Warrant officers Brian Van Dusen and Hans Gukeisen and Corporal Richard Carl died when their black hawk helicopter crashed.

On Jan. 8, Chief Warrant officers Philip Johnson Junior, Ian Manuel and Sergeants Michael Diraimondo and Christopher Golby died when their black hawk crashed.

Some of the troops say the homecoming is bittersweet because of the loss of those soldiers.
