The Nebraska Air National Guard will honored more than 230 airmen who recently returned from deployments to various locations around the world, during a ceremony Saturday in Lincoln.

The event welcomed home airmen who have served in the Middle East, Europe and the Pacific since July 2014 for periods ranging from 30 days to nine months, according to a Nebraska National Guard news release. The 230 airmen represent about one-fourth of the state’s Air Guard members.

Lt. Gov. Mike Foley and Maj. Gen Daryl Bohac, Nebraska’s adjutant general, are among those who were scheduled to speak.

The event was at 9 a.m. at Nebraska National Guard headquarters near the Lincoln Airport. It was not open to the public because of space constraints, the release said.
