ND Guard members return from Cameroon

FARGO – Nearly 40 North Dakota National Guard members who took part in a U.S. Army exercise in Cameroon have returned home.

The 10-day exercise partnered Cameroon’s military with about 160 U.S. service members and soldiers from five other central African nations to enhance aerial package delivery and establish drop zones, as well as emergency medical treatment and evacuating wounded and injured people via Cameroon air assets.

North Dakota’s contingent included liaison officers Capt. Travis Hackey, West Fargo, and 1st Sgt. Bruce Newland, Grand Forks, as well as Guard members from the Valley City-based 231st Brigade Support Battalion.
