Soldiers Return Home

Posted: Updated:

Soldiers with the North Dakota National Guard's Detachment 42nd Operational Support Airlift returned home this evening after being in Ft. Hood Texas for the past four days for demobilization processing. 

The guardsmen deployed to Afghanistan earlier this year and while they were there, the aviation unit operated King Air 300 aircraft, equipped with surveillance systems, to help protect military members on the ground. And while being able to protect other members was a rewarding experience, guardsmen say being home and holding their loved ones is overwhelming, but also extremely special. 

"It's just so much family right now-it's overwhelming-it's just great to be back. I'm really thankful to the National Guard for getting us home; they did a great job," says Black Hawk Crew Chief, Nathan Doll. "My grandma brought my favorite food and everything, so I'm just glad to be back."

Soldiers also flew in to Grand Forks tonight for another welcome-home ceremony.
