ND National Guard soldiers back in US from Kosovo; will go through demobilization at Fort Hood


BISMARCK, North Dakota — About 40 North Dakota Army National Guard soldiers who served a year in Kosovo are back on American soil.

Guard spokeswoman Billie Jo Lorius says members of the Bismarck-based Company C, 2nd Battalion of the 285th Aviation Regiment arrived at Fort Hood, Texas, shortly after 4:30 a.m. Monday.

The soldiers will go through the demobilization process at Fort Hood before returning to North Dakota, probably next week sometime.

The North Dakota unit that flies Black Hawk helicopters supported an international peacekeeping mission in Kosovo.
