About 80 soldiers from the Washington National Guard’s 1st Squadron, 140th Aviation Regiment will be welcomed home 10 a.m. Saturday at Fort Lewis after a year-long deployment in Iraq, the Guard said. The ceremony will be held in Soldiers Field House.

The squadron’s UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter pilots, crew members and maintainers performed “air assault operations, tactical air movements and support missions” across Iraq, the Guard said in a press release.

The unit is part of the Washington Guard’s 66th Theater Aviation Command based at Fort Lewis.
