Daines welcomes home troops in Kalispell

KALISPELL – Saturday night, Senator Steve Daines was in Kalispell at the Glacier Jet Center welcoming home Kalispell’s 495th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion.

This is the same group of soldiers that Daines visited in Afghanistan this past December. 

At 11 p.m. Saturday, around 80 men and women returned home after nine months overseas serving the U.S.

Families and friends of the soldiers waited eagerly for the arrival of their loved ones, and when they were reunited, it was quite emotional.
