Michael Haley's unit of more than 40 soldiers with the National Guard's Agribusiness Development Team arrived at an airport in Columbia, South Carolina, where it was greeted by a welcoming ceremony, South Carolina Guard spokeswoman Cynthia King said.

It was the first overseas deployment for Captain Haley, 43, who joined the Army National Guard in 2006.
