Thomasville-- They're FINALLY coming home after being overseas for more than a year, the 1148th Transportation Unit is back on American soil and will return to Thomasville next week.

"This is a good time to show your patriotism for your country, particularly for those who have been away," said florist Jimmy Singletary, as he prepares red, white and blue ribbons that will go up on businesses and homes this week as a way to display pride in those who have and are still serving. 

"I think it's a nice thing to show for those that have spent their time and for those that have lost their lives and shows that those are very appreciate of what they've done," Singletary said.

And though there are still many more soldiers from South Georgia serving in Iraq, we're proud to have this group home. "We're still going to have quite a few that will be over there until things are finally settled, but it's nice to have them back and makes it feel like, at least something has been accomplished."

Nearly 100 soldiers returned to Ft. Benning yesterday as part of the 1148th transportation unit.
