An Army National Guard air unit has returned to South Carolina after a seven-month deployment to Iraq and Kuwait.
About 400 members of the 151st Attack Reconnaissance Battalion returned Friday to the McEntire Joint National Guard Base in Eastover.
The unit left in May for four months of training at Fort Hood, Texas and then deployed to Iraq.
The Associated Press reports the soldiers then moved to Kuwait after U.S. forces were withdrawn from Iraq in December.
The unit flew helicopter reconnaissance missions in Iraq and Kuwait. It also trained with members of the Kuwaiti Air Force.
