Dothan-Based Guard Scheduled to Return from Iraq

A National Guard unit from Dothan could return home this weekend after nearly nine months in Iraq.

170 members of the 1203rd Engineer Battalion's headquarters company was scheduled to return this week to Fort McCoy, Wisconsin.

After a few days at Fort McCoy, the unit should head home to Dothan and could arrive this Sunday.

The 1203rd's mission overseas included road-side bomb patrols, helping communities erect security barriers and working with Iraqi soldiers to repair bomb-damaged roads.
