Wisconsin National Guard troops to be welcomed home Thursday

by

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Thirteen more Wisconsin National Guard troops will be welcomed home Thursday.

They’re part of the 82nd Agri-Business Development Team – and they’ve spent the last year with a reconstruction group in Kunar Province.

They and 45 others were planning to teach Afghans how to farm. But the latter group was re-assigned to security missions, and they came home last September.

The remaining 13 group members will be honored in a 2 p.m. ceremony Thursday at the Armed Forces Reserve Center in Madison.

The Agri-Business team left Hartford last February to get some training before heading off to the Middle East.

The guard's 97th Agri-Business Development Team has replaced the 82nd, and is currently performing missions in Afghanistan.
