The members of the 189th Aviation Regiment’s Company C, 1st Battalion provided medical evacuation flights in the Middle East, using Black Hawk helicopters.
The soldiers with the Rapid City-based unit are now back at Fort Hood, Texas, going through demobilization. They’ll then return home to South Dakota. A welcome-home ceremony is being planned for early November.
