Bainbridge- Bainbridge welcomes home their National Guard heroes. They've been back from Iraq for more than a month, but Wednesday they were the guests of honor at a special welcome home ceremony.
The city of Bainbridge, Decatur County, the American Legion Posts 62 and 502 and the VFW Post 4904 held a brown bag lunch to thank Bainbridge area soldiers who were attached to the 48-th Brigade.
Sirens wailed and horns sounded welcoming home 12 soldiers with the National Guard 1230th's Transportation Company.
"They really need that because they sacrificed their lives for all of us and we have a lot to be thankful for to them," said Mary Ann White, Sgt. Leslie White's wife.
In a patriotic sea of red, white, and blue waves of community members shook their heroes' hands.
"We can't do enough because they not only give their time, but their families, they're away from home a lot of them have children here," said Mark Harrell, Bainbridge Mayor.
Heads bowed the crowd remembered those who didn't return and Soldiers returned the sentiments.
"We appreciated everything that everybody done for us here, all the folks in the state of Georgia and Florida," said Sgt. Leslie White, 1230th Transportation Company.
Though the task was tough.
"It was a hard long 18 months we had to fight to keep going," said Spc. Colossis Nixon, 1230th Transportation Company.
The rewards have been great.
"It means a whole lot to see that people in the community are coming out and they care about other people than their selves," said Nixon.
That support has truly made these soldiers feel welcomed back to south Georgia. Eight businesses also provided gifts to the soldiers to show their gratitude.
