Staff Sgt. Dwayne Kenneth Lewis of Kernersville, a truck driver with the 1452nd Heavy Transportation Company, says he brought the last American soldier out of Iraq in mid-December 2011, completing the U.S. troop withdrawal from the war-torn country.

Lewis, 50, said last week he didn’t know the soldier’s name or what unit the soldier was assigned to at the time. When Lewis’ truck arrived at Camp Arafjan, Kuwait, Army officials took that soldier’s personal gear and the equipment assigned to him and put them in an Army museum at Fort Hood, Texas.
