On Thursday, Sept. 2, an Ohio National Guard C-130 aircraft carrying Afghan evacuees arrived in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Soldiers with the 1st Calvary Division and Indiana National Guard greeted the Afghans, who will now begin their safe resettlement to the United States.
The troops will provide transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and logistics support as part of Operation Allies Welcome.
The evacuees will now head to Camp Atterbury in Edinburgh, Indiana, just south of Indianapolis. The training base has been selected alongside seven other military facilities to house evacuees from Afghanistan.
According to reports, about 5,000 individuals will be housed at Camp Atterbury.
