  • More than 250 soldiers of the 364th Expeditionary Sustainment Command, a U.S. Army Reserve unit from Marysville, Wash., returned to the states today after a yearlong deployment to Kuwait.

The 364th ESC was mobilized in July 2011 for service in Kuwait, overseeing the drawdown of American forces from Iraq.

“This is truly an historic day for the 364th ESC’s soldiers,” said Brig. Gen. Jonathan Ives, the unit’s commanding general. “They have met the test, brilliantly performed the job they deployed for, and most importantly, gotten American soldiers back home.
	
“I’m incredibly proud of them,” Ives added. “Now, we’re all looking forward to getting home to our families. We couldn’t have done this without their love and support.”

The unit’s soldiers helped move more than 68,000 troops, thousands of vehicles, and untold tons of equipment, implementing President Barack Obama’s directive to have all U.S. combat forces out of Iraq by the end of 2011.

The soldiers of the 364th ESC will be at Fort Bliss for approximately 10 to 14 days, undergoing demobilization processing before going home. The unit contains Army Reserve soldiers from 39 states, two countries, and one U.S. territory.

Capt. Jason Egnew, from Seattle, Commander of the Headquarters and Headquarters Company for the 364th ESC speaks of mission success. Also available in high definition
