August 19, 2003 - Posted at: 4:06 p.m. CDT

CAMP ROBINSON, Ark -- The Arkansas Army National Guard received a demobilization order today releasing the 224th Maintenance Company, 142nd Field Artillery Brigade from active federal duty effective October 15.

The soldiers, based in Mountain Home and Marshall, have been deployed since March 15 to Fort Sill, Oklahoma in support of Operation Noble Eagle/Enduring Freedom.

"The 224th has represented the Arkansas Guard well and we're proud of their service," said Major General Don C. Morrow, the adjutant general of Arkansas.  "With the large number of deployments we're currently supporting, it's heartening to be able to welcome some of our troops back home."

The unit has been providing multiple levels of maintenance support to several Army units including the 3rd Armored Division and 3rd Corps and is expected to be back at home station by the end of September.
