Soldiers from the Kansas National Guard are coming home from a yearlong deployment to the Horn of Africa.

A welcoming ceremony was planned Monday at Forbes Field in Topeka for the approximately 175 soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 161st Field Artillery and 35th Military Police Company.

The battalion is headquartered in Wichita with subordinate units in Dodge City, Great Bend, Lenexa, Liberal, Hutchinson, Newton, Paola, Pratt and Topeka.

The soldiers spent the past year conducting stability operations in Africa with partner nations and working to maintain regional security.
