60 members of the North Dakota National Guard are starting to return to the state after a ten month deployment in Afghanistan.

Three members of the 136th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion returned to Bismarck today. Nine more guardsmen will return home tomorrow.

In addition, more soldiers are returning to airports across the state. Captain Justin Berger missed most of his daughters first year in the world.

“It was a little tough, this was my first deployment since being married and the baby was born about three weeks after I got in to country,” said Capt. Justin Berger ND National Guard.

Berger was stationed at Camp Marmel in Mazar-i-Sharif where his unit provided logistical support like supplying ammo, fuel, water and construction supplies to Army troops.
