    The Ohio National Guard welcomed home about 190 Soldiers from the 1st Battalion, 174th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, headquartered in Cincinnati, as they return from a nearly yearlong deployment to the National Capital Region as part of the Integrated Air Defense System mission. The unit was recognized during a ceremony Aug. 10 at the Landmark Church.

    Soldiers of the 1-174th ADA provided personnel support to the homeland defense mission, which included the use of radar, ground-based air defense systems and communications equipment.

    The Integrated Air Defense System in the National Capital Region (NCR), consisting of sensors, alert fighters, and ground based air defense weapons systems, was established shortly after Sept. 11, 2001, at the direction of the Secretary of Defense. Originally manned by active-duty forces, the NCR has been manned by Air and Army National Guard members since 2003. The mission stands today as a prime example of the National Guard fulfilling its “Defense of the Homeland” mission.
