A crowd of family and friends greeted the soldiers at Burns High School. “It is really, really good to be home,” said 1Lt. Loren Emang to the crowd that gathered in the BHS gymnasium. “The reason we serve is for our community.” The troops were officially demobilized and embraced by their friends and family members.
