SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Members of a Kansas National Guard helicopter unit are on their way home from Afghanistan after a year of providing medical support.

A welcome-home ceremony is scheduled Tuesday for about 20 members of Detachment 2, Company C, 2nd Battalion, 211th Aviation Regiment. The event is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at the Salina Army Aviation Support Facility.

Guard officials say the Black Hawk helicopter unit deployed last July 15. Members trained in Texas before heading to Afghanistan.

The unit's duties included aeromedical evacuation, transport of patients and medical personnel and other support functions.
