St. Louis soldiers return home from deployment

Soldiers from the 516th Transportation Detachment, Movement Control Team, are welcomed home by their family members. The St. Louis Army Reserve unit returned home Nov. 10 after a nine month deployment to Kuwait in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. The unit's approximately 20 Soldiers processed more than 36,500 transportation requests for the movement of approximately 135,000 vehicles as the prime movers for the theater of Kuwait. The unit was also responsible for the management and oversight of the largest government contract in Kuwait. The 516th established a team to monitor the use of contractor transportation assets ensuring maximum operation without fraud, waste or abuse to the government. The 516th also developed enduring tasks for movement control in the theater of Kuwait after consolidating four movement control teams to one. (U.S. Army photo by Sgt. Debralee P.
