South Dakota Guard airmen preparing to deploy to SW Asia

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - About 200 airmen with the South Dakota Air National Guard are preparing to deploy to Southwest Asia.

The Guard says the members of the 114th Fighter Wing will leave from Sioux Falls this month for an undisclosed location, where they will support an ongoing Air Force operation. The airmen will return home in the fall.

It will be the fifth large-scale deployment for the 114th Fighter Wing since the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
