INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) - Nearly 200 National Guard troops are back in Indiana after serving overseas in Afghanistan.
The group came home to Stout Field around 12:30 a.m. Friday.
They're all part of Task Force Cyclone, and they had just one hour with family before heading to demobilization at Camp Atterbury.
“I’m so glad to be home again to serve my community and to spend some real time with my family,” said Master Sgt. John Plasse.
Plasse is the Chief of Police in Terre Haute and has been away for the past year. This was his second tour.
The 171 soldiers are all from the Kentucky and Indiana National Guard.
Their main focus was to partner with Afghan leaders to improve security.
“The first thing I’m going to do is have a big steak and corn on the cob with my family,” said James Simmons.
After a few days at demobilization, the troops will return to their family.
