A very happy homecoming Friday for a Connecticut National Guard unit stationed overseas for the past year.
The Waterbury-based 143rd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion was welcomed home from Poland by family and friends in Windsor Locks.
“I’m just glad to have him coming home. He’s been gone since November, so we’re just happy to have him come home”, said Bridgette Leomi, a proud mother.
“What he’s doing over there…all of these guys over there…to make sure we have a free country…we should all be proud of that”, said proud father Thomas Bentzau.
During their deployment, the Batallion provided logistical support in support of operation Atlantic Resolve.
