BISMARCK, N.D. - After a yearlong deployment to the middle east, the final three Soldiers of the 1919th Contingency Contracting Team (CCT) will arrive home in Bismarck on Tuesday at 2 p.m. They will arrive at the North Dakota National Guard's Army Aviation Support Facility south of the Bismarck Airport.

The Soldiers arrived back in the U.S. last week and are completing the demobilization process at Camp Shelby, Miss.

The unit is comprised of four Soldiers, each with specialized skills in planning, coordinating and issuing contracts for supplies and services required for supporting U.S. military forces in the field. The commander of the unit, Maj. Mike Lowe, of Bismarck, arrived in North Dakota last month.

Based in Bismarck, the 1919th CCT Soldiers' deployment experience was unique because they were dispersed individually to Afghanistan and Qatar. The Soldiers were responsible for contracting support with civilian organizations, which included American contractors, in-country contractors, and foreign businesses.

The unit's Freedom Salute, a formal welcome home event, is scheduled in Bismarck on Dec. 7.
