Hundreds Of Wisconsin National Guard Soldiers To Return Home
CAMP DOUGLAS, Wis. -- Senior National Guard officials and family members will welcome home about 300 soldiers from the 724th Engineer Battalion.

There will be a brief ceremony before the soldiers are taken to nearby Fort McCoy to start about five days of demobilization before their release.

The battalion formally ended its mission in Iraq on Monday. The 724th Engineer Battalion was deployed last April with about 400 soldiers from units from Chippewa Falls, Hayward, Superior and Medford.

Want more crazy? Walker ordered the National Guard to get ready to respond to a strike or any resistance to his plan. The last time Wisconsin called in the National Guard during a labor dispute was way back in 1886, when Guard militiamen shot on a rally of Milwaukee workers advocating an 8-hour work day. Five unarmed workers were killed in the massacre.
