After more than 11 months in Kuwait, the 882nd Engineer Company based in Mocksville is home. The group arrived in 3 large busses at the National Guard Armory around 1:30 on Wednesday afternoon.

"He left in June and when he left I was 7 months pregnant and she was born in August," said Brittany Haberny about her husband Brian who missed the birth of their daughter.

As the troops were unloading, he made a dash to his 8 month old daughter.

The company spent their time in Kuwait building troop housing and infrastructure for the military base there. They are a part of more than 800 NC National Guard troops still stationed overseas.
