Daugaard to speak at 114th welcome home ceremony
SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Adjutant General Maj. Gen. Tim Reisch will speak in Sioux Falls Monday at a welcome home ceremony for security force members of the South Dakota Air National Guard's 114th Fighter Wing.
Thirty soldiers from the unit deployed to southeast Asia this past spring for six months in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. While overseas they performed security, force protection and law enforcement duties for U.S. and allied forces.
Over the past two decades, the 114th Fighter Wing has deployed to allied bases in Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Iraq.
The ceremony will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the base dining hall.
