1148th Transportation Group coming home soon

July 15, 2004

Kuwait - We have great news for family and friends of a local national guard unit. The 1148th Transportation Company will be coming home in less than a week.

Soldiers in the Thomasville unit are scheduled to leave Kuwait during the early hours on Wednesday July 21st.

The 15 hour flight should put them at Ft. Benning sometime late Wednesday or early Thursday morning.

They will spend a week at Ft. Benning and then return to Thomasville for a homecoming parade.

The unit left the United States exactly a year and three months ago today.

They have a camp in Kuwait, but have been hauling supplies to troops in Iraq.
