Troops Return

By  | 

While about 150 Nebraska Army National Guard members returned to the state Tuesday morning, two other units are getting themselves settled in the Middle East.

The Chadron-based Ten-57th Light-Medium Truck Company flew in to Lincoln this morning. The soldiers will spend nearly a week at Camp Ashland between Lincoln and Omaha for rest, briefings, and family reunions before heading home next Monday.

But Captain Kevin Hynes says two other units remain in the Middle East. He says there are about 150 members of the Lincoln-based 267th Ordinance Company in Iraq, where they have been for about two months. He says another 110 or so members of Company B, 735th Main Support Battalion have been in Kuwait.

The 267th has attachments in Gering and Hastings. The 735th is based in Kearney but has attachments in McCook, Lexington, and Omaha.
