MISSOULA -

After spending nearly a year away from family, friends and loved ones, 145 members of the Montana Army National Guard will return to the treasure state on Saturday.

For the last nine months, the 1-189th General Support Aviation Battalion was stationed in Kuwait as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. The unit provided general aviation support to the 42nd Combat Aviation Brigade.

The soldiers landed on American soil on Tuesday and have been completing demobilization requirements at Fort Hood, Texas since.

The public is invited and encouraged to attend Saturday's homecoming at the Army Aviation Support Facility in Helena at 9:30 a.m.
