North Carolina National Guard unit welcomed home

ASHEVILLE, NC (WBTV) -

A big welcome home Saturday for members of the National Guard in North Carolina.
 
The 211th MP company returned to Asheville after serving in Afghanistan.

They were the first National Guard ground unit in the U-S to go to war in the combat zone after the September 11th terrorist attacks.  

WBTV was there during the 211th's first deployment back in January of 2002.  

The unit is based in Clyde, which is just west of Asheville.
