After ten long months serving overseas, several American heroes returned to the 1175th in Brownsville on Sunday, June 9.
They were escorted in by the Haywood County Sheriff’s Department and members of the Patriot Guard, and arrived at the Wyatt-Duke National Guard Armory just after 1 p.m. I had a chance to speak to Specialist James Jones’ wife right before they arrived. She was noticeably excited, and said that she was a little nervous. She explained to me that she was about seven months pregnant when her husband left, so he would be holding his son for the first time that afternoon.
