JONESBORO, AR--Our soldeirs from the 875th Engineer Battalion are back home again. The busses rolled into Paragould, Jonesboro, and Little Rock on Saturday. Thousands lined the streets in Paragould in Jonesboro to welcome home our troops and tell them, "job well done."
It was a day filled with cheers and tears, hugs and love, and thankful hearts that the 875th soldiers are home. One soldier, Sgt. Erich Smallwood did not make it back, he died back in May when an IED exploded and hit his Humvee. There were signs remembering Smallwood and his sacrifice.
