Washington Army Reserve unit returns

More than 250 soldiers of the 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, a U.S. Army Reserve unit from Marysville, returned stateside after a year-long deployment to Kuwait.

The unit’s soldiers helped with the draw-down of American forces from Iraq, and moved more than 68,000 troops, thousands of vehicles and tons of equipment.

The soldiers of the 364th will be at Fort Bliss, Texas, for about 10 days, undergoing demobilization processing before going home. The unit contains Army Reserve soldiers from 39 states, two countries and one U.S. territory.
