That was the word on many people’s lips today at the Warrior Citizen Homecoming Ceremony honoring the 844th Engineer Combat Battalion, an Army reserve unit based here.
“You are all heroes, and I salute each and every one of you,” said Sgt. Maj. Brian Hart, addressing the men and women from the unit who spent months in Iraq, Kuwait or Afghanistan.
Many of the unit deployed as early as 2003 and spent more than a year building roads and strengthening the infrastructure to support Operations Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.
