Soldiers Honored 

Local Army National Guard soldiers who’ve recently returned from deployment were given a hearty thanks Saturday.

A special welcome home ceremony was held at the Army facility in Bangor.

Troops from different units were honored for their recent work, both overseas and here at home.

Some soldiers on hand recently returned from tours of duty in Iraq, Afghanistan and Kuwait.

Army officials say it’s important to let the soldiers know how grateful America is for their service to the country.
