COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - About 100 soldiers are scheduled to return to Fort Benning in Georgia after a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reports (http://bit.ly/17WfBX4) that members of the 14th Combat Support Hospital are expected to return Wednesday to the west Georgia Army base.

The unit is made up of soldiers assigned at Fort Benning and medical personnel from throughout the Army.

Elsie Jackson, public affairs spokeswoman at the base, says that a ceremony is expected to be held Wednesday evening at Freedom Hall at Fort Benning.

The highly mobile unit is made up of soldiers who are trained and equipped to treat wounds from bullets and improvised explosive devices and other combat injuries.
