National Guard troops to return to Wisconsin

Posted:

Governor Jim Doyle will welcome home about 115 members of the Wisconsin National Guard's 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team.

The ceremony will take place Tuesday at 1:00 p.m. at the Volk Field Air National Guard Base at Camp Douglas.

Most of the soldiers returning tomorrow are members of Troop A, 1st Squadron, and 105th Cavalry based in Fort Atkinson.

They just completed a one-year deployment to Iraq, along with more than 3,000 other Wisconsin National Guard troops. That's the largest operational deployment of the Wisconsin Guard since World War II. The remaining members of the 32nd will return home later this month.
