About 250 Winder-based soldiers who have been serving in Afghanistan since last spring are heading home.
And that means everyone.
Capt. Nathan Wilson told the Barrow Journal that while there have been some injuries, there hasn’t been a single fatality in either the Headquarters Company or the Echo Company, the two companies at the Georgia National Guard’s armory in Winder.
Wilson said everyone is expected to be back in Georgia by March 31. They will arrive on different flights at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah and be bused to Fort Stewart to greet their families.
After a few days, some of the soldiers will travel with their families by car to Winder. Others will arrive by bus.
