St Paul (KROC AM News) - They were there during a deadly bombing and dealt with the chaos at the airport in Kabul, Afghanistan the last two weeks and now they are back with their unit.
The Minnesota National Guard reported Tuesday night that 400 of its soldiers from a unit that was deployed to Kuwait earlier this year had safely left Afghanistan and returned to their base.

The group was sent to Kabul “to provide perimeter security at the airport.”
The MNG says they also “provided humanitarian assistance to U.S. citizens, Special Immigrant Visa holders, and their families.”
They are part of a group of 1000 soldiers that belong to Task Force 1-194, 1st Armored Brigade Combat Team, 34th Red Bull Infantry Division that deployed in March in support of Operation Spartan Shield and Operation Enduring Freedom in Kuwait.
They are due back in Minnesota this coming winter.
