CAMP ROBINSON, AR - Many of the soldiers of the Arkansas Army National Guard's 39th Infantry Brigade who returned from Iraq to Fort Hood, Texas, last Saturday are scheduled to return to Region 8 early this evening, which, ironically enough, happens to be Veteran's Day.
Buses scheduled to depart Fort Hood around 6 a.m. today will make stops at the National Guard Readiness Center in Hope, and at Camp Robinson in North Little Rock before reaching their final destination at the Guard Readiness Center in Searcy.
While some soldiers will leave Texas in their personal vehicles, about 100 of the 240 returnees will be on the buses bound for home. Only a small handful of soldiers will disembark in Hope and North Little Rock, as the majority of the troops will reunite with family members in Searcy around 5 p.m.
