BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) _ About 160 North Dakota National Guard soldiers who served a year in the Middle East are in the back in the state.
Governor Jack Dalrymple (DAHL'-rimp-ul) says the members of the Wahpeton-based 188th Engineer Company arrived in Fargo on Friday.
The soldiers are from nearly 70 communities across North Dakota and into Minnesota. They deployed to Kuwait last August.
The military says the soldiers completed numerous construction projects ranging from small repairs to major renovations and building construction.
