SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Members of the Massachusetts National Guard are back home after being deployed to Washington, D.C.

The 182nd Infantry Regiment returned to Melrose last night.

Cheering crowds carrying signs and flags greeted the troops at the Melrose Armory.

Guard members were given rapid response COVID-19 tests before they could go home.
