FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The last North Dakota National Guard soldier to serve in Iraq is returning home.

Staff Sgt. Teresa Pavljuk with the Air National Guard's 119th Wing is to fly into Fargo early Wednesday afternoon. She deployed in March, and was one of the last U.S. service members to leave Iraq when the U.S. ended combat operations there.

About 2,000 North Dakota Guardsmen served during the nearly nine-year war in Iraq.
