South Georgia soldiers scheduled to come home

February 24, 2004

Kuwait - A year ago, the 1148th Transportation Group left Thomasville to fight for Operation Iraqi Freedom. Now, the soldiers are preparing to come home.

They are in Kuwait right now, but their mission should be complete by March 23rd.

The men and women were deployed from Ft. Benning March 15th of last year. Some soldiers have already returned home due to medical reasons.

They are expected to have a big homecoming at Ft. Benning and in Thomasville. The national guard unit drives trucks and hauls military equipment.
