Soldiers Returning to North Miss.

HOUSTON, Miss. – (WCBI) 95 soldiers with the 288th Sapper Unit of the Mississippi National Guard will return home later this month.

While a specific date has not been released, they are expected to be back around September 25th.

The unit deployed to Afghanistan on October 5th of last year. They will be flying into the Tupelo Regional Airport after stopping in at Fort Bliss in Texas.

The Houston based unit received the nickname, “Hilltoppers,” after they flew the high schools mascot flag.

This is third deployment for the 288th Sapper unit.
