Bridge Engineers Return
A six Soldier-team of the Bismarck-based 957th Engineer Company (Multi-role Bridge) returned to North Dakota on May 20 after serving on an overseas deployment. One of the Soldiers was dropped off in Fargo, while the other five traveled to the N.D. National Guard's Army Aviation Support Facility in Bismarck. Gov. Doug Burgum, Maj. Gen. Al Dohrmann, family and fellow service members greeted them inside the C-12 hanger. The engineers, mobilized in June 2019, assisted in the training of Iraqi army bridge engineers. Among their major accomplishments was developing an Program of Instruction (POI) for the Harzone Panel Bridge.
