11/26/2019- The entirety of the approximately 400 Soldiers of the Wisconsin Army National Guard’s 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry returned safely to the United States this week after a year-long mobilization to Afghanistan. The first wave of around 190 “Red Arrow” Soldiers landed in Texas November 17, and the remaining nearly 200 Soldiers landed November 23 as the unit completed its mission overseas. Senior Wisconsin Army National Guard leaders were waiting to greet the unit as it arrived in Texas. The Soldiers will complete demobilization requirements at Fort Bliss before returning to the Badger State, where the Wisconsin National Guard is planning a homecoming ceremony. The battalion is based in Appleton, but also has armories in Green Bay, Marinette, Fond du Lac, Ripon, Clintonville and Waupun.
