About 60 Idaho Army National Guard Citizen Soldiers of Company A, 1-168 General Support Aviation Battalion returned to Boise on Saturday evening.
The soldiers returned to the U.S. last weekend from a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom, where they operated eight UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters assigned to the unit.
The soldiers have been at Ft. Hood, TX, undergoing a comprehensive "outprocessing" procedure.
Most will return to Boise on commercial airlines Saturday. The remaining group will return on Sunday.
