SOUTH BEND, IND. — A crowd waving American flags and hand-made signs welcomed back about 120 members of a South Bend-based Army Reserve unit from a deployment to Guantanamo Bay.

The soldiers with the 428th Military Police Company were reunited with family members Wednesday after spending 10 months on duty at the base in Cuba. While there, the soldiers worked as guards and did other duties at the military-run prison for terrorist suspects.

Sgt. Robert McBride told WSBT-TV that words canít explain how much he missed his family while being away for so long.

Unit commander Capt. Kyle Eickhorst told the South Bend Tribune that all the soldiers were true professionals while dealing with the detainees.
