Gov. Nikki Haley’s husband, Michael, will return home from a nearly year-long military deployment to Afghanistan around noon Thursday, the S.C. National Guard announced Wednesday.
Michael Haley, a captain in the S.C. guard, is considered the first spouse of a sitting governor to deploy to a combat zone with the National Guard.
He was part of an agriculture-training group that worked with Afghanistan farmers. More than 40 members of Agribusiness Development Team 3-49 are returning to Columbia on Thursday, the Guard said.
