The 585th Engineer Company returned home this morning after a 15-month tour in Afghanistan.
The 165-soldier company deployed in November 2006 and construction work on forward operating bases and roads, according to a Fort Lewis press release. Two of its soldiers, Sgt. 1st Class Rocky Herrera, 43, and Sgt. Cory Clark, 25, were killed Aug. 28 in a suicide-bombing at a bridge where they were working.
The company is part of the 555th Engineer Brigade at Fort Lewis.
