One week after a roadside bomb in Afghanistan killed two North Dakota National Guard soldiers, the bodies of the two men are back home.
Yesterday, the body of Sergeant Darren Linde arrived in the city he called home for most of his life - Sidney, Montana.
What the military terms the "dignified transfer of remains" was carried out at the Sidney-Richland Airport on Sunday.
The 41-year-old Linde is survived by his wife and four children.
His funeral service will be tomorrow in Sidney.
Meanwhile this afternoon, the body of Specialist Tyler Orgaard was returned to his hometown of Bismarck.
Funeral services for the 20-year-old Orgaard will be Thursday at 10:30 the Church of Corpus Christi in Bismarck.
Orgaard and Linde were killed while conducting route clearance operations in Afghanistan when an explosive device hit their vehicle.
A third soldier, Specialist Ian Placek of Bismarck was wounded in the attack and is recovering at a hospital in Kansas.
