MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Over 180 Wisconsin National Guard airmen are returning home Monday night from a mission in Africa.
Members of the Air National Guard’s 115th Fighter Wing were sent overseas in January.
They worked with Guard troops from Vermont and Colorado on a counter-terrorism mission.
Governor Scott Walker and top officials from the state Guard will help welcome the airmen home.
Their friends and relatives will be on hand, but officials the proceeding is closed to the general public.
The Madison unit sent airmen to Iraq in 2006, ’08, and ’09.
