(WTNH) — 150 Connecticut National Guard members are home this morning after deployments to Southwest Asia.
A ceremony was held last night in downtown Hartford to welcome them home. The three units all returned to Connecticut within the last 90 days.
“As soon as I saw my mom, my wife, my kids, I broke down so it was a moment to remember,” Sgt. Teresa Morrison.
As the guard welcomed home three units, it sent off another 50 members will soon be deploying to Afghanistan.
