(Minneapolis, MN) -- Home for Christmas has never felt better for 140 Minnesota National Guard soldiers. They returned to the state yesterday after spending eight months in Afghanistan. The soldiers spent their time in the war zone working on repairing roads, construction, maintenance and other duties on supply routes. A welcome ceremony was held at Cambridge-Isanti High School for the members of the Army's 850th Horizontal Engineers Company.
