FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Four airmen with the North Dakota Air National Guard are returning home after four months of duty in Southwest Asia.
The airmen are scheduled to fly in to Fargo on two flights late Tuesday. The Guard did not disclose their exact area of service overseas. They handled duties including overseeing a fitness center, assisting with lodging for soldiers, ensuring the quality of food service and helping with food deliveries.
Only two North Dakota Air National Guard soldiers remain overseas. The Guard says that for a brief time after the new year there will be no North Dakota airmen overseas. The Guard says the break in service will be the first since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
More than 100 North Dakota Army National Guard soldiers are deployed overseas.
