INDIANAPOLIS — About 400 Indiana National Guard soldiers returned to Indiana on Sunday after being deployed to Washington, D.C.

While in the nation’s capital, Indiana soldiers were tasked with manning traffic control points, providing security, and escorting emergency vehicles during the ongoing protests.

“We are excited to welcome our soldiers back to Indiana. I am proud of the professionalism displayed in helping to protect life, preserve critical infrastructure and ensure people’s Constitutional rights,” said Brig. Gen. Dale Lyles, Indiana National Guard adjutant general.

The soldiers will complete a COVID-19 screening before leaving Camp Atterbury. The screening will include, at minimum, an assessment of exposure history, a temperature check, and a check for COVID-19 signs and symptoms.
