Soldiers return home to Minnesota

| 1 Comment

More than 200 soldiers from the National Guard will be returning to Minnesota on Wednesday, the Pioneer Press reported.

The Guard's First Brigade Combat Team 34th Infantry Division - or better known as the Red Bulls - are arriving home after a year's deployment. They will be the second group to come back to Minnesota after a year in Kuwait.

The group of 219 soldiers is among nearly 3,000 Red Bulls who will be returning to Minnesota over the next few weeks. They represent the state's largest single deployment since World War II, according to the Pioneer Press. The thousands of soldiers were deployed to either Kuwait or Afghanistan, the Minnesota Daily reported.

They will arrive throughout the day in Pine City, Cloquet, Duluth, Hibbing, Anoka, St. Cloud, Brainerd, Bloomington and elsewhere throughout the state.

Gosh, my boyfriend, just got back from his deployment in Afganistan, but I did not know that such a big number of soldiers have came back from Kuwait. Such news are always great ones!
