WYOMING -- About 330 Michigan National Guard soldiers will return home Friday following an 11-month deployment to Kuwait and Iraq. Friends and family will gather at Resurrection Life Church, 5100 Ivanrest SW, in Wyoming at 2 p.m. for a welcome home ceremony.
The soldiers were assigned to four different 126th Cavalry Squadron companies from Wyoming, Cadillac, Manistee, and Dowagiac that are headquartered out of the Grand Valley Armory on 44th Street. The group left in January to train at Fort Hood, Texas and arrived in Kuwait in April. They provided convoy security and security force protection missions between locations in Kuwait and Iraq.
