PIERRE, SD -
A South Dakota National Guard unit that spent four months in Afghanistan is back on American soil.
The 68 members of the Pierre-based 152nd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion landed at Fort Hood, Texas, early Tuesday. They are expected to return to South Dakota sometime next week after going through the demobilization process.
The battalion had its tour of duty shortened twice - from a year to nine months, then to four months. While overseas the group provided support in areas including supplies, maintenance, transportation and weapons.
