FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The body of a North Dakota National Guard

soldier who died in Kosovo of apparent natural causes is arriving

home in Fargo on Thursday afternoon.

The Guard says visitation is planned at a local funeral home

Thursday evening for Sgt. Terry Rishling, who died Feb. 10 at a

hospital at Camp Bondsteel after falling ill.

About 650 North Dakotans are part of a peacekeeping force in

Kosovo. The 38-year-old Rishling was a team leader for Third Squad,

Third Platoon of the Valley City-based 231st Maneuver Task Force. A

memorial service was held Monday in Kosovo.
