Three months after returning from a yearlong deployment to Iraq, 20 soldiers from the 132nd Quartermaster Company will reunite at a Freedom Salute and Tribute ceremony set for 2 p.m. Saturday in the National Guard Armory in Grand Forks.

The event also will recognize the contributions and sacrifices by the soldiers' families and employers during mobilization.

Gov. John Hoeven and Maj. Gen. David Sprynczynatyk, North Dakota National Guard adjutant general, will thank the National Guardsmen and their supporters for their service and accomplishments.

The 132nd Quartermaster Company mobilized May 1, 2007, and arrived in Iraq in July. The soldiers performed water purification operations in support of U.S and coalition forces in Iraq until April 2008.

The Quartermaster Company is commanded by 1st Lt. Donald Williams, Bismarck; the senior enlisted soldier, Staff Sgt. Kenneth Weber, is from Devils Lake.
