The Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/12ak68T ) the soldiers — members of the base’s 52nd Engineer Battalion — reunited with their loved ones during a ceremony Friday.

Soldiers of the battalion’s 497th Engineer Company split their time between Kuwait and Afghanistan, completing more than 40 projects, like the construction of containment berms at a fuel facility and waste-water retention ponds.

Meanwhile, platoon-sized detachments from the battalion worked in Afghanistan, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates on infrastructure projects and to improve bases.
