Soldiers with the Delaware National Guard's 153rd Military Police Company will return to home soil Saturday after about ten months in Afghanistan.

127 members were scheduled for a year long deployment but wrapped up their mission six to eight weeks early.

There's a homecoming scheduled for Saturday at 11 am at the Governor Bacon Parade Company in Delaware City.

Among those on hand among the thousand or so expected will be the second lady of the United States, Dr. Jill Biden.
