After spending 15 months away from home, members of the 186th engineer company are back safely.
The 186th Engineer Company from Dothan was mobilized in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in July of 2006.
Saturday, they arrived back at the Dothan airport around 10 o'clock in the morning and then headed over to the armory in buses escorted by police cruisers and motorcycles.
Friends and family gathered inside the armory where emotions were running wild.
The unit was working hard while they were in Kuwait.
They made several missions to Iraq, operated heavy equipment, and performed various other types of engineer work.
