FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Fifteen North Dakota National Guard soldiers who have been serving overseas since September are returning home.

The soldiers are assigned to the Fargo-based 231st Brigade Support Battalion Logistical Support Element. They managed supply, maintenance and transportation for units in the U.S. Central Command, or CENTCOM.

CENTCOM covers security and military issues in the central area of the globe and includes 20 countries, including Afghanistan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia.

The North Dakota soldiers arrived at Fort Hood, Texas, on Friday. They will return to North Dakota Tuesday evening on separate civilian flights.

Twelve soldiers are scheduled to arrive at Hector International Airport in Fargo at 8:35 p.m. and three soldiers are scheduled to arrive at the Bismarck Municipal Airport at 8:01 p.m.
