MIAMI (AP) - A Miami-based Army engineering battalion returns home from Afghanistan. A plan carrying up to 100 Army soldiers returning from combat duty will arrive at Miami International Airport on Sunday. The U.S. Army 841st Engineer Battalion spent six months working to building a $27 million camp in the northern region of the country. The Miami Herald reports the camp will be used as staging headquarters for troop departures as part of the military drawdown. Twenty six soldiers will stay behind to manage the ongoing projects.
