Regional News

EDINBURGH, Ind. (AP) — Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb has visited Afghan refugees at the Indiana National Guard’s Camp Atterbury training base nearly a week after the first wave of evacuees arrived.

State officials say the first group of roughly 1,000 evacuees were admitted to the camp on Sept. 2. They will be provided temporary housing and support services before being resettled.

The Republican governor visited Wednesday. He says Indiana is committed to helping the evacuees, which include American citizens, Afghan allies who helped in the military effort and those deemed vulnerable Afghans by the U.S. government.
