MINOT, N.D. - About sixty North Dakota Army National Guard Soldiers returned home this week.

Among them was Des Lacs native Zackary Greenwell, who arrived in Minot late last night.

Greenwell had been deployed for ten months in Afghanistan.

"It's pretty amazing to be back. I'm just really excited to get back home in my own bed, see my own friends and family. Just settle in and get back to normal," said Greenwell.

This was Greenwell's first deployment. He plans to attend college next fall.
