LITTLE ROCK, Ark (KTHV) - It's a story we've covered since he left. Arkansas National Guardsman Staff Sgt. Jerry Clagett was deployed to Kosovo July 8, 2012 with the 2nd Battalion, 238th Air Ambulance of the 77th Aviation Brigade.
The 21 man unit has spent the last ten months doing medevac missions for NATO troops in Kosovo. Meanwhile, back in Conway, Clagett's wife Doris and 5-year-old daughter Ava have been patiently awaiting his returning.
Friday, Staff Sgt. Clagett and six of his fellow guardsmen are scheduled to return from their mission. They will arrive at the Bill & Hillary Clinton National Airport at 10:45 p.m.
