Local Troops Coming Home After Year in Afghanistan

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- A Welcome Home Ceremony is planned for Tuesday night for members of the Alabama Army National Gaurd's Light Infantry Team #4.

Around 16 members of the team will arrive back in Montgomery after serving nearly a year of active duty in Afghanistan.

The team members were chosen to help train, manage and support members of the Afghan National Army because of their military job specialties.

The ceremony to welcome the soldiers home will be held at 6:30 Tuesday night at Fort Taylor Hardin armory on the Northern Bypass.

Meanwhile, members of Alabama's Light Infantry Team #5 are being staffed and manned to deploy to Afghanistan in the near future.
