ND Guard soldiers return to US from Afghanistan

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Several North Dakota National Guard Soldiers who have been serving in Afghanistan since last winter have returned to the United States.

The members of the Bismarck-based Detachment 42 Operational Support Airlift unit landed in Texas late Wednesday. They will go through the demobilization process at Fort Hood before returning to North Dakota.

The eight soldiers left in January to provide aerial surveillance and support for troops on the ground in Afghanistan.
