About 170 soldiers with the 549th Quartermaster and 360th Transportation Company returned to the Mountain Post on Thursday following a 15-month deployment to Iraq.

Members of the 360th completed nearly 450 missions and logged more than 1 million miles. They hauled fuel and other items to combat outposts.

Soldiers with the 549th supported the effort by making sure troops got showers, clean laundry and sturdy clothes.

Specialist Edwin Wilber says it feels good to finally be home.

"My mom had a horrible time. It worked out. I'm home safe and sound," said Specialist Edwin Wilber.

Specialist Edwin Wilber's wife and twin brother, Eric were also deployed with him.

"Out of seven children my wife and I have, five of them were in Iraq for the past 15 months. After today, they will all be home," said Chuck Conn, father of Specialist Edwin Wilber and Specialist Eric Wilber.
