ND Guard returning home from Cuba

FARGO – About 30 North Dakota Army National Guard soldiers who served nearly a year at the U.S. Navy base in Cuba are coming home.

The soldiers with the 191st Military Police Company are scheduled to return to various locations in North Dakota today. The majority of the group is flying into Fargo, with others going to Minot and Bismarck. One soldier is flying to Chicago.

Most of the soldiers are flying home alone, after undergoing more than four days of demobilization at Fort Bliss in Texas.

The company mobilized last October and arrived at the high-security prison at Guantanamo Bay in November. They joined a larger force there.
