Posted: Updated:

More than 100 South Dakota Army National Guard members are home for the holidays.
    
The 124 soldiers with the 235th Military Police Company were welcomed home Monday in Rapid City after a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.
    
Family and friends packed the Rapid City Rushmore Plaza Civic Center for a ceremony that included speeches by the governor, Rapid City mayor and adjutant general of the Guard.
    
It was the third mobilization for the 235th. The unit earlier deployed in 2003 to Fort Carson, Colo., and in 2006 to Afghanistan.
