Troops reunited with loved ones at a homecoming ceremony Monday night at the South Fort Fire Station.

Last December seven firefighters in the 524th Engineer Detachment, 46th Engineer Battalion left for Romania where their mission was to provide fire safety at a base in support of Operation Atlantic Resolve.

Since being activated at Fort Polk, the 524th has deployed to Iraq and now to Romania twice.

KALB spoke with some soldiers before they deployed last year.
