Sunday, an official welcome home was given to those National Guard troops from Sheridan who worked hard to keep us safe and keep us free. Recently returning home from a year-long deployment to Kuwait and Iraq, the soldiers of the 115th Fires Brigade were honored in a ceremony at the Holiday Inn.
Called the Freedom Salute Ceremony, Governor Dave Freudenthal and U.S. Senator John Barasso were on hand to commend and thank the soldiers and their families for their sacrifice in protecting our freedoms. Governor Freudenthal said Wyoming has a reason to be proud.
Senator Barrasso visited the troops three times while in Kuwait and took note of the support the troops received from home.
This was the sixth of seven Freedom Salute Ceremonies being held across the state this month.
