       The remains of Sgt. Jeremy F. Hardison of Maysville, Sgt. Donna R. Johnson of Raeford and Sgt. Thomas J. Butler IV of Wilmington were flown into Dover Air Force Base Tuesday evening.

       According to the Pentagon, the three died Monday in Khost, Afghanistan, after an insurgent detonated a suicide vest while the guardsmen were on patrol.

       The soldiers were assigned to the 514th Military Police Company, which is based in Winterville.
