MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Sixteen Wisconsin National Guard members could be home as early as next month, as they start wrapping up a mission to train security forces in Afghanistan.
The Guard’s 104th Security Force Advise and Assist Team has been in the Middle East since January.
They’ve been helping Afghan troops prepare for what happens after the U.S. withdraws from there. The unit has also worked with local residents on a number of projects in Afghanistan.
The troops helped open two new schools and created a water well. They also delivered school supplies to remote villages near Afghanistan’s borders with Iran and Turkmenistan.
