FARGO - Ten Fargo-based Army Reservists are returning home today after a nearly yearlong deployment in Afghanistan.

The members of the 461st Engineering Company will arrive at Hector International Airport in two groups, one at 10:30 a.m. and another at 12:30 p.m., said their commander, Capt. Julia Livingston.

The soldiers were among 20 members of the 461st attached to the Decorah, Iowa-based 322nd Engineering Company for the deployment, Livingston said. The soldiers are carpenters, plumbers and electricians who worked on construction projects, she said.

The rest of those deployed will return to Bismarck, Grand Forks and Minneapolis.

The 461st has about 100 soldiers, half of them in Fargo, with the rest in Bismarck and Grand Forks, Livingston said.
