National Guard Returns to Tallahassee

May 24th, 2010 by flanews

150 Florida troops are back at home tonight after a year deployment in Afghanistan. Governor Charlie Crist greeted the Army National Guards 779th Engineering Battalion as they arrived back in Tallahassee this afternoon. Not one soldiers from the battalion was killed in the deployment. Crist praised the guardsmen and women for their courage.

You do and are willing to do to protect and fight for our freedoms, our liberty, our constitutional guarantee to be able to pursue happiness. Its lost on none of us back here in Florida and throughout our country, it is truly remarkable the kind of courage that each and every one of you exemplify, said Crist.

Although it was nice to here from the governor, the troops were more anxious to see their families, who showed up hours early to wait for their loved ones.
