CAMP TAJI, IRAQ - For the Arkansas soldiers in the 39th Infantry serving in Iraq, it's yard sale time.

Now that the soldiers are about to return home, they're trying to sell the items they have accumalated while serving in the war.  Some have accumalated whole apartments worth of electronics, appliances and food.

Hundreds of the Arkansas-based soldiers stood outside their trailers this weekend with the mini-fridges, CDs, DVDs, space heaters and televisions they bought from Iraqi vendors or received in care packages.  They were hawking the wares to incoming members of the Third Infantry Division.

The Arkansas National Guard unit was put on active duty in October 2003 and have been in the Middle East since March of last year.
