CAMP SHELBY, MS (WDAM) - Soldiers from the Army Reserve's 380th Company out of Greenville Mississippi arrived at Camp Shelby Monday morning after being deployed to Iraq for 9 months.

The 79-member unit's mission was to  maintain and support the Iraqi transportation infrastructure as well provide horizontal engineer support to coalition out bases. The large amount of improvised explosive devices found recently in Iraq is greatly attributed to the  efforts of the 380th.

The soldiers will spend the next few days out processing before returning to their families.
