Infantry Returns to Jersey City
Photos and story by Tech. Sgt. Mark Olsen, NJDMAVA/PA

On April 21, the last GTMO rotation Welcome Home ceremony honored the 2nd Battalion, 113th Infantry in Jersey City. The Battalion, which had just completed a nine-month deployment to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, received a triumphant welcome home. Family, friends, Jersey City Police and Fire Department members, elected officials, community members, along with fellow National Guard Soldiers and Airmen participated. The event's highlight came when 40 Battalion Soldiers were reenlisted in the New Jersey Army National Guard.
