Chisholm-based guard unit scheduled to return next week


CHISHOLM, Minnesota — More than 140 soldiers from the Minnesota National Guard are scheduled to return to the state next week.

Soldiers from the 114th Transportation Company return after a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

The company's commander Capt. Ryan Koester says the Chisholm-based unit helped to draw down operations in Afghanistan. Soldiers moved equipment over a combined 85,000 miles in closing five bases.

The unit is currently undergoing demobilization.
