SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (WDTN) — About 260 Ohio National Guard soldiers arrived home to a crowd of loved ones at Springfield High School Saturday afternoon.

The troops are part of the 371st Sustainment Brigade. They’ve been deployed in Kuwait since June of last year.

During their time overseas, the soldiers provided logistical support in eight countries.
