More than 180 soldiers with the 200th Engineer Company of the South Dakota Army National Guard have returned to the United States after a year-long deployment to Afghanistan.
The unit deployed in May 2011 in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Their job was to maintain, repair and replace existing military bridges throughout Afghanistan.
Members of company are from Pierre, Mobridge and Chamberlain. They will spend about a week at Fort Dix in New Jersey completing demobilization requirements before returning to South Dakota.
