The members of the 927th arrived in the U.S. on April 15 and spent about a week at Fort Bliss, Texas, completing de-mobilization requirements before returning to South Dakota.

Lt. Gov. Matt Michels and Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch, the guard's adjutant general, will speak at the event. The public is encouraged to attend.
