It's been one year since two North Dakota National Guard soldiers were killed in action while serving in Afghanistan.
41-year-old Sgt. 1st Class Darren Linde, of Devils Lake, and 20-year-old Specialist First Class Tyler Orgaard, of Bismarck, died one year ago when a roadside bomb struck their vehicle.
Both were members of the 818th Engineering Company.
Around one hundred members of the unit left for a year-long deployment in April 2012 and returned home in March 2011.
The unit is headquartered in Williston with a detachment in Hazen.
