Cordele -- Troops from the 48th Brigade will get a warm welcome home in Cordele upon their return to civilian life.

Symbols of the homecoming already line the streets. The soldiers are set to parade through the city streets later this week.

The troops will parade past several local schools and will give South Georgians a chance to show their American pride.

"We just wan them to know how much we appreciate them leaving their families, leaving their country, and going and protecting us. That's the ultimate sacrifice," said Chamber of Commerce President Monica Simmons.

The parade is tentatively set to start this Friday between noon and one at the Crisp and Wilcox county line. It will end at the National Guard Armory in Cordele.
