There were plenty of hugs and kisses Friday when soldiers in the U.S. Army Reserve’s 212th Transportation Company, headquartered in Chattanooga, were greeted by family members as they returned home from a yearlong tour of duty in Afghanistan.
The soldiers served capably and courageously. And while some of them were injured during their deployment, it is a blessing that none was killed or disabled.
On the occasion of their return to the embrace of friends and families, we honor them for fine service.
