Welcome home ceremony set Friday

The Missouri National Guard is holding a welcome home ceremony at 4 p.m. Friday at the Ike Skelton Training Site for guardsmen from the headquarters and headquarters detachment, 229th Multifunctional Medical Battalion.

The soldiers are returning from a year-long deployment to the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt where they supported Task Force Sinai as part of a 12-nation multinational force and observers.

In addition to providing command and control, the joint battalion’s mission included mail and supply delivery, financial services, flight scheduling for aviation assets, sanitation inspections and providing health care.

Sgt. Maj. Sharon Belt, Henley, is the battalion’s senior enlisted soldier.
