Fifty-two soldiers of Company C, 2-211th General Support Aviation Battalion, are scheduled to return to Minnesota today (Tuesday).

Army Maj. Daniel R. O’Meara, C Company Commander. said in a press release:

 ”The sacrifices of these soldiers and their families is immeasurable and their actions will have a lasting, positive influence on military operations in western Afghanistan. Their ability to provide medical evacuation coverage to American and International Forces directly contributed to efforts to stabilize the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and their citizens.”

The company flew more than 3,200 hours and covered an area of approximately 62,000 square miles in western Afghanistan, providing training on joint medical evacuation to Italian, Spanish, Lithuanian, Slovenian and Polish military personnel.

The general public is invited to attend the initial reunion with families today (Tuesday, June 18) at 12:10 p.m. at Army Aviation Support Facility, near the St. Cloud Airport.
