SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KRNV & Mynews4.com) -- A group of more than 100 National Guard soldiers of Charlie Company from across California, Nevada and Washington just returned from Afghanistan and are being lauded for their combat aerial medical operations Army-wide.

During a nine-month tour in Afghanistan, the citizen-soldiers of the Charlie Company provided aerial medical evacuation (medevac) support to the Regional Command (RC) West and Southwest. The team logged more than 3,000 flight hours, 683 medevac missions and transported 730 patients.

Following similar deployments in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2002 and 2008, this tour marked the third rotation in which the Company served in Afghanistan.
