As it turned out, members of the Wyoming Legislature did not have the opportunity last week to welcome troops home in Laramie, as planned.
Representative Rosie Berger of Sheridan said their transport vehicle didn’t make it to Cheyenne that morning.
She was thankful, she said when we talked to her by phone on Friday, that no one was hurt in the bus crash, but the turn of events, turned her Thursday morning a bit topsy-turvy.
Her comments, as mentioned, were from a phone interview on Friday. In an earlier report, she gave details about the service group. She said the legislators would be welcoming home the Wyoming Army National Guard’s 133rd Engineer Company.
She said the 162 soldiers in the company deployed from Wyoming in April and are from 38 communities across the state, as well as Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nebraska and Utah. They were stationed at Isa Air Base in Bahrain, to provide security to the personnel and equipment there on the base.
