Local Army reservists return home

Camp Shelby, Miss. (WDAM) -- Some local families are no doubt excited. Members of the Montgomery based 926th Engineer Brigade were officially welcomed home Thursday in Mississippi after serving about a year in Iraq.

A welcome home ceremony was held for the 120 members. Roughly half are from the Montgomery area.

The 926th helped in combat and construction efforts in Baghdad and Sadr City. The unit lost two of its officers in Iraq. One died of a heart attack and the other was killed in an explosion.
