OSHKOSH, Wis (WSAU)   A welcoming home ceremony will be held today for 130 Wisconsin soldiers who planned on going to Kuwait – but were sent to Afghanistan instead. Members of the National Guard’s 1157th Transportation Company spent 10 months escorting convoys in Afghanistan. They were re-assigned from Kuwait, after the Pentagon re-allocated its forces.

The Oshkosh group also includes soldiers from several other Wisconsin guard units from around the state. They’ll reunite with friends and loved ones in a one o’clock ceremony at the E-A-A grounds in Oshkosh. At first, only friends-and-relatives were invited – but officials said yesterday that the general public can attend as well.

Governor Scott Walker, Adjutant General Don Dunbar, and other top military leaders will speak at the event.
