Prescott Welcomes Charlie Company Home

The Yavapai County Courthouse plaza was the site Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019, for a patriotic welcome home for the 100 or so rain-soaked members of the Charlie Company 158 Infantry “Bushmasters” Battalion, which returned to Arizona from Afghanistan in May. They were heralded with shouts of “Welcome home,” and “We love you.” Speakers included Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli; Major General Michael “Mick” McGuire; Yavapai County Supervisor Craig Brown, who served as master of ceremonies; Supervisor Rowle Simmons; former Prescott Mayor Marlin Kuykendall; Keith Forte, Veterans Outreach Manager in Sen. Martha McSally’s office; and Prescott VA Director Barbara Oemcke, and more. (Photos by Cindy Barks, reporter for The Daily Courier.)
