A welcome home celebration is planned for this afternoon (Monday) at Camp Dodge.
Two units of the Iowa National Guard are returning to the Hawkeye State after about 13 months of federal active duty in the Persian Gulf. The 767th Engineer Team,(shown in photo above), spent the past year in Iraq on firefighting duty while the 10-88th Personnel Services Detachment has been in Kuwait — providing administrative services. Combined, the two units have about 65 members who are all completing their demobilation processing at about the same time and should be arriving at the Joint Forces Headquarters around 5:30 P.M.
