More ND Guard troops back in US from Afghanistan; all of 814th now back on American soil


BISMARCK, North Dakota — More North Dakota National Guard soldiers who have been serving in Afghanistan are back in the United States.

About 25 soldiers with the Bismarck-based 814th Medical Company arrived at Fort Hood in Texas on Monday. They'll go through the demobilization process and then return to North Dakota.

The 40-person company deployed to Afghanistan in January to provide emergency trauma service and operate troop medical clinics. The soldiers are coming home early as part of a drawdown of American troops in that country.

Smaller groups of 814th soldiers came back in August and September.
