By The State Column

Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) will welcome Maryland troops home from Afghanistan tomorrow, Saturday, October 15, 2011. About 60 members of the Maryland National Guard 313th Movement Control Battalion based in Curtis Bay served a 1-year deployment in Afghanistan developing ways to transport cargo and supplies by land, air and sea.

“The citizen soldiers of the 313th are responsible for safely moving soldiers, supplies and equipment across the front lines using every mode of transportation available,” said Congressman Ruppersberger. “I am proud to welcome these brave men and women back home and thank them for their sacrifices and the sacrifices of their families.”
