More than 300 state and federal officials, family members and veterans crowded into the Smyrna Readiness Center (8/5) to welcome home the Delaware Army National Guard Individual Mobilization Augmentation Team returning from Afghanistan.

 

Major General Frank Vavala, Adjutant General of the Delaware National Guard, said the returning team volunteered for the one-year mission in support 98,000 troops serving in the landlocked Asian nation.  Vavala said during their tour, the team’s six members purchased over $334 million worth of rations, issued nearly 393 million gallons of fuel and oversaw the delivery of 106 million meals and 41 million pounds of mail.  U.S. Senator Tom Carper said the work of the Delaware Guard members helped to further our nation’s ultimate goal of making Afghanistan a country “that can govern itself, feed itself, and defend itself.”
