CAMP ZAMA, Japan (Feb. 28, 2012) -- Spc. Hezekiah Allard, in uniform, assigned to the 623rd Movement Control Team, reunites with his wife Emily and their 1-year-old son Cayden at the Youth Center here Monday upon the unit's return to Japan following a 12-month deployment to Afghanistan. The unit's 20 Soldiers marched onto the Youth Center's gymnasium floor and were met with applause from their family members, fellow Soldiers and other community members. The 623rd MCT departed Japan last February, just a few weeks before a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and follow-on tsunami devastated the country.
