North Carolina National Guard unit that lost comrades in Afghanistan welcomed home


Members of the 514th Military Police Company marched through the streets as flag waving supporters cheered.

The group even got an escort from the Greenville Police Department.

There were lots of hugs and kisses from family members who haven't seen their loved ones since the unit deployed a year ago.

The 514th lost three of its members in October to a suicide bomber. Killed were Sgt. Donna R. Johnson, 29, of Raeford, N.C., Sgt. Jeremy F. Hardison, 23, of Browns Summit, N.C., and Sgt. Thomas J. Butler IV, 25, of Leland, N.C.
