Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Mission accomplished for Albany Marine Depot Maintenance Command's overseas support.

The final two civilian workers returned home from Afghanistan Friday afternoon.

They are among the nearly 150 Depot Maintenance Command personnel deployed to Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan for support missions over the last five years.

Their return marks the end of the Depot Maintenance Command support mission. 95% of the Depot Command deployments were one year in duration.

More than half of those stayed overseas between two and four years.
