BW Speaks With Returning Soldiers at Joint Base Lewis-McChord

Posted By on Thu, Sep 8, 2011 at 4:30 PM

Nearly all of the Idaho soldiers deployed in Iraq with the Idaho Army National Guard 116th Calvary Brigade have arrived back in the United States.

Since Aug. 7, Maj. Dan Johnson has headed up a "white cell" at Joint Base Lewis-McChord with a team of about 125 people helping to demobilize the troops. Maj. Johnson and his team help get the troops through the processing checklist they must complete before they fly home, including everything from organizing transportation and getting the troops fed.

Citydesk will have more on this story tomorrow.
