About 80 soldiers from a South Carolina Army National Guard unit are returning home after eight months providing security for U.S. engineers and medical personnel in Afghanistan.
Guard spokesman Capt. Tim Irvin says the last group from the 1st Battalion, 178th Field Artillery, based in Georgetown, should return Sunday to the Columbia airport. Others in the 800-soldier unit have been coming back in small groups since Nov. 12.
They were posted near Kabul and provided security for members of a provincial reconstruction team.
