Welcome home

By HectorRivera  
This is a good day. Our comrades return to their families after a six month deployment to Tallil, Iraq as mortuary affairs Specialists. This Soldier, is an American Hero, him and his comrades expend the past six month ensuring our Soldiers Killed in Battle received the due respect, ensuring each of our fallen comrades returned home to their families in an honorable manner, doing what is right for the surviving families. Specialist Acevedo is part of the 54th QM Co. Task Force deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan in July 2008. This task Force consisted of 54 Soldiers trained as Mortuary Affairs Specialist and returned to Fort Lee, VA on 9 February 2008, where they were received by their fellow Soldiers and family members. It was an emotional reunion, filled with tiers, joy and hope. A new group of 54 Soldiers from the 54th QM Co. is now deployed to continue this honorable mission.
