PIERRE, S.D.–A welcome home ceremony is being held today for the Pierre-based 152nd Combat Sustainment Support Battalion of the South Dakota Army National Guard.

The unit is returning from an 11-month deployment to the Middle East.

South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds says it’s always good to welcome our troops home.

Rounds says when a National Guard unit is activated, a community is activated.

As a precaution against COVID-19, the welcome home ceremony is limited to soldiers and their immediate family members. It will be live streamed for public viewing on the South Dakota National Guard’s Facebook page.
