By: Roxie Graham-Marski Posted at: 09/27/2012 10:17 AM
     SPEARFISH, S.D. (AP) - The Black Hills communities of Spearfish, Belle Fourche and Sturgis are welcoming home 160 South Dakota Army National Guard soldiers on Thursday.
 
     A ceremony for the 842nd Engineer Company is scheduled for 2:30 p.m. at Black Hills State University in Spearfish.
 
     The unit, which deployed in September, just completed a yearlong deployment to Afghanistan. The soldiers have been completing demobilization requirements at Fort Bliss, Texas.
 
     While overseas, members of the 842nd used bulldozers, scrapers, cranes, loaders and 20-ton dump trucks to build and maintain roads, construct base force protection measures and provide limited clearing operations.
