National Guard troops return home


Maine Governor Paul LePage has welcomed home 75 members of the Maine National Guard who were deployed to Kuwait. The 126th Aviation Unit’s Charlie Company served a year as a medevac helicopter unit. In that time, the unit flew more than 1,200 sorties and completed 43 missions. LePage told the personnel Friday that ‘‘Maine is proud of you.’’ Charlie Company was last deployed in 2009 to Kuwait and southern Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
