Soldiers Return

Some soldiers from the Wiregrass are now home, after 12 months on active duty and after playing a pivotal role in Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Seven members of the 1308 Engineer Team arrived at Fort Benning's Lawson Army Airfield Tuesday.

The unit specialized in providing topographic, weather and terrain analysis to Army commanders in Iraq.

A guard spokesman said the soldiers must now begin demobilization. They are expected back in New Brockton sometime next week.
