ATLANTA (AP) - Thousands of soldiers who have spent the past year in Afghanistan are heading back to Georgia this month.
The 3,200 soldiers of the 48th Infantry Brigade in Afghanistan are expected to begin coming home in February.
Lt. Colonel Ken Baldowski of the Georgia Department of Defense says the soldiers, many of whom are from north Georgia, will come home in staggered waves through April. The troops began a deployment to Afghanistan in February of 2008, where they trained Afghan police and security forces.
