It was a great weekend for many Northland families as they welcomed home loved ones after their support of Operation Inherent Resolve in Southwest Asia.

About 200 members arrived in Duluth early Saturday morning after being deployed for 3 months. Nearly half of the unit's members have deployed throughout 2017-2018.

I love seeing these family reunions, and I'm so thankful everyone returned safely. Many members of the 148th are still deployed, so keep them and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
