NEWPORT NEWS, VA. — About 100 soldiers based at Fort Eustis are returning to Virginia following a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

The soldiers are from the 359th Inland Cargo Transfer Company. They’re scheduled to be back at Fort Eustis on Monday night.

While deployed, the company was responsible for conducting duties as a convoy escort team.

During the deployment, three of the company’s soldiers were killed in the line of duty. Sgt. Caryn Nouv and Sgt. Eric T. Lawson were killed in July when enemy forces attacked their vehicle with an improvised explosive device and small arms fire. Sgt. Justin R. Johnson was killed in June at the entry control point of Bagram Air Base when he was struck by indirect fire.
