This free event is sponsored by the Black Hills Veterans Writing Group.

Limbo’s 200th Engineer Company was stationed 45 miles north of Baghdad, where they built and maintained a bridge across the Tigris River, despite daily mortar attacks.

SDNG historian Duke Doering reports that “The soldiers of the 200th Engineer Company have seen death and the horrors of war. The South Dakota National Guard unit was stationed in the middle of some of the most brutal terrorist attacks in the war.”
