Army reservists welcomed home after serving in Guantanamo Bay

Dozens of families are celebrating a successful homecoming.

One hundred Army soldiers are home safe and sound.

The men and women were deployed last August and came home to the South Bend Armory Wednesday afternoon.

They were working as prison guards in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. They received a police escort from the airport and were greeted at the armory by dozens of friends and family.

Sergeant Robert McBride says, “It’s still kind of unreal, still of kind of a shock.”

The Army Reservists are with the 428th Military Police Company.

No word on the unit's next assignment.
