CHEYENNE - Soldiers from the Wyoming Army National Guard's 133rd Engineer Company will return to Laramie at 8:10 a.m. on Feb. 13 at the Laramie Airport.
Members of the public are invited to join Wyoming Army National Guard command and the soldiers' families in welcoming the unit home. The airport's hangar, located south of the terminal, will be open to family members, media and the public 30 minutes prior to the chartered aircraft arrival.
Those planning to attend may park in the airport's parking lot, or, if necessary, an overflow area to the west. A brief homecoming ceremony will be held in the hangar.
The unit returned for out-processing to Camp Shelby, Miss., on Feb. 4.
"We look forward to welcoming these Wyoming heroes home," said Maj. Gen. Luke Reiner, Wyoming's adjutant general. "I was pleased to be there when they landed in the states on Feb. 4, but itís their welcome to Wyoming we have all been waiting for."
The 162 Wyoming Soldiers left the Laramie airport in April 2013 to conduct pre-mobilization training at Camp Shelby, Miss., before making the journey to Bahrain in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Their 400-day mission was to conduct base security operations at Isa Air Base.
