BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Nearly 100 Baton Rouge National Guardsmen returned from a year-long deployment in Afghanistan. One of the National Guardsmen, Sgt. Joseph Rainbolt met his little girl for the very first time.
"It's my first time. I mean, I got to Skype her birth at the USO, but this is the first time I got to actually see her, so I'm pretty excited about that," said Rainbolt.
Many touching reunions like this one played out at the Baton Rouge Metro Airport on Saturday afternoon. The 927th Engineer Company were excitedly welcomed back by friends and family.
