776 to return Saturday

From Staff Reports

   The last members of the Army National Guard's 776th Maintenance Company who deployed to Fort Campbell, Ky. in January will return home Saturday, Dec. 20 just in time for Christmas. The unit will arrive at the Elizabethton Armory, Route 9, Don Lewis Rd. at 4 p.m.
   Randy Harris, communications director for the state's Department of Military, said Tuesday the decision for the rest of the company to return was "just part of a normal rotation". He said between 60 to 80 soldiers will arrive home Saturday.
   The 776th deployed to Fort Campbell to assist the 101st Airborne Division before it left for Iraq. Afterward, the unit helped prepare other companies for mobilization from Fort Campbell.
   A "welcome home" event is scheduled for Saturday.
