The remaining six Wisconsin National Guard Soldiers from the 32nd Infantry Brigade Combat Team have returned to the United States following nearly a year in Kuwait.

The Soldiers are part of the 32nd Base Defense Operations Center (BDOC), who augmented the Area Support Group's mission of providing life support operations for more than 16,000 personnel spanning several bases while also upholding the defense cooperation agreement with Kuwait. They arrived at Fort Hood, Texas Feb. 18, and will return to Wisconsin after completing post-mobilization requirements.

Brig. Gen. Kenneth Koon, assistant adjutant general for readiness and training, and Command Sgt. Maj. Bradley Shields greeted the returning Soldiers at Fort Hood.

"The 6 soldiers had a very successful flight back after a great transition with their replacement unit," said Shields. "It was a challenging mission and they are looking forward to getting home this weekend."

The first group of BDOC Soldiers returned to Wisconsin Dec. 20, and more Soldiers arrived Jan. 22 and 24. The BDOC and another specially formed detachment — the 32nd Military Engagement Team — left Wisconsin Feb. 22, 2014.
