Santa Rosa Press Democrat - Bittersweet homecoming today

Bittersweet homecoming today

Hit harder by combat death and injury in Iraq than any other California National Guard unit, a Petaluma-based company will celebrate its homecoming today at the armory on Vallejo Street.

More than one out of five soldiers in 90-member A Company of the 579th Engineer Battalion died or suffered wounds . . .

This really brings things a lot closer to home for me.
