EDMOND — More than 160 members of the 1345th Transportation Company, 90th Troop Command of the Oklahoma Army National Guard, recently returned home after nearly a yearlong deployment to Kuwait.

The 1345th, also known as "Rolling Thunder," conducted tactical convoy operations by providing security escorts and ammunition resupply in support of Operation Spartan Shield, an operation conducting regional engagements in much of the Middle East.
