Last Soldiers from Red Arrow Group Return from Afghanistan

Nov 29, 2019
MADISON, Wis. — The remaining 200 or so soldiers from a Wisconsin Army National Guard’s Red Arrow infantry group have returned home from Afghanistan.

About 400 soldiers from the Red Arrow’s 2nd Battalion, 127th Infantry were deployed to Afghanistan late last year to provide protection for U.S. advisers, contractors and Afghan troops.

About 200 troops returned to Fort Bliss, Texas, on Nov. 17. The Wisconsin National Guard said that the remaining 200 or so soldiers landed at the base on Nov. 23.

Soldiers from the Red Arrow’s 1st Battalion, 128th Infantry have replaced the troops in Afghanistan.
