ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — All the members of the U.S. Army Reserve’s 452nd Ordnance Co. are now back home, after spending a year in Kuwait and Iraq.

The American News reports that the last nine soldiers arrived by bus in the northern South Dakota city of Aberdeen on Monday afternoon. Earlier in the day, buses dropped off other soldiers in cities in Minnesota, Nebraska and Missouri. A few other members of the unit flew home.

About 50 members of the Aberdeen-based 452nd returned to that city in late July. Five other soldiers with medical conditions returned home about the same time.

Chief Warrant Officer Aaron Donat of Fargo, N.D., says the troops are on transitional leave, meaning they’re still technically on active duty but won’t be called to service.
