SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- Fourteen soldiers from the 927th Engineer Detachment's survey and design team will be welcomed home Sunday.

The South Dakota Army National Guard ceremony is being held at 11 a.m. at the Holiday Inn City Center in Sioux Falls. The unit just completed a nine-month deployment to Kuwait and Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

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.
