CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. (AP) - About 160 Wisconsin Army National Guard soldiers return to Camp Douglas following their service in Afghanistan.

The 829th Engineer Company will be welcomed home during a Monday afternoon ceremony at a Volk Field hangar. The unit is headquartered in Chippewa Falls and has detachment armories in Ashland and Richmond Center.

The soldiers spent six months in Afghanistan where they dismantled coalition structures and facilities. The unit returned to the U.S. at Fort Bliss, Texas on Nov. 25 and underwent demobilization.
