The final North Dakota National Guard Airman serving in Afghanistan will
return home on Wednesday. 

Staff Sgt. Omar Arellano will arrive on American Airlines Flight 3738 
at 11:45 a.m. on October 30th at Hector International Airport in Fargo. 

Arellano is the last of nearly 30 Airmen with the North Dakota Air National Guard's 
119th Security Forces Squadron who have been serving at Bagram Airfield since March.  
Most of the group was able to return on Oct. 8, with others returning on Oct. 17 and 23.

While all of the Airmen have been deployed in security-related jobs, the small differences
in their mission and the schedule of their replacement forces have resulted in the varying
return times.

The North Dakota Airmen worked on perimeter defense and flight-line security,
served on fly-away security teams, and managed security at vehicle and pedestrian 
entry control points.

They were part of a group responsible for the security of about 36,000 people and 
$3.5 billion in assets.
