Hayward honored its National Guard company Sunday during the city’s annual Musky Festival. After a ten-month deployment in Iraq the 724th Engineer Forward Support Company received a well deserved standing ovation.

It had all the makings of a parade, but the atmosphere of a troops welcome home.

WDIO reports that Sunday the 62nd Annual Musky Fest honored the 91 troops of the Hayward-based Wisconsin National Guard 724th Engineer Battalion Forward Standing Company.

The company made up mostly of Wisconsinites came back in late February after a year of active duty including 10 months of service in Iraq.
